Exactly what is meant by "Multi-seat PC"?
I'm working on defining a heavily customized personal installation of Debian. One of the *STRONG* underlying assumptions is the the machine would only ever be used by a specific individual. One of the underlying motivations is personally understanding the the guts of Linux.


About anachronism... you should read about what is the minitel*,
and then, consider thinking about how most people uses their

Is there any current survey of people actually use computers today?
My personal usage would be email, web browsing, and some number crunching. I would explicitly avoid installing anything that would act as a server when connected to a network.
