(N)X2Go - LowBandwith sessions for takeaway incl. sound
during Linuxtag 2007 in Berlin, I attended a presentation of X2Go.
I reported earlier here about this solution that was deviced for a
community using Thin clients with LTSP. Officers can take home their
open X session on a USB dongle - in a secure partition they store some
key that enables resumption of a running (N)X session. As I learned,
everything is included (even LDAP authentification), and there is deep
interest in cooperation with Debian-Edu.
For those of you who have time and interest to check out a live CD ISO
image for testing, here is some new information:

Please give feedback here - and to Heinz (one of the main developers of
the project) after testing.
