I'm working on defining a heavily customized personal
installation of
Debian. One of the *STRONG* underlying assumptions is the the
would only ever be used by a specific individual. One of the
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.


That what I thought it probaly meant.
Thank you.
