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.
Multi-seat is where one machine is physically used by multiple users
concurrently. One display, keyboard and mouse per user are plugged in
to a single box and configured (with various amounts of fiddling) in X.
It is used to good effect in classrooms and libraries, especially as
IIRC Brazil has some very large deployments.
