Hi debian-l10n-english people :) I've got an english wording question, where you maybe can help Debian Edu to find a good choice. In the past, Debian Edu offered four types of profiles to install: main-server, thin-client-server, workstation and standalone. The world was easy and the world was good. (These profiles and their names are shown during installation and used throughout our manual, so they are quite visible.) And then the world became better and we got a problem: the former thin-client-server was suddenly also able to serve (diskless) workstations, as the underlying technology, LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project), grew to support that. (In case you dont know: a thin-client is a machine running a local X server, with its root filesystem mounted from the thin-client-server and all the apps running on the thin-client server. The thin-client is merely a display so to say. OTOH a diskless workstation also mounts its file system from the LTSP server, but all apps run locally on the workstation.) So we want to rename the thin-client-server profile, to make it obvious that not only thin-clients are supported, but also diskless workstations (and also other types, like localapps-thin-clients, where only some apps run locally...) So we need a new name. ltsp-server is not a good one, because the technology used could change again tomorrow. (In fact, since a few days these servers _also_ allow access via remote desktop, a totally different technology.) So, my current proposals for a new name are: - GUI server - desktop server - console server Other, better suggestions? cheers & thanks for your time, Holger
