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 thin clients.

IIRC Brazil has some very large deployments.
