I don't have any information on Tuxlab, per se, but I've been playing
with LTSP on Breezy this morning and I'm impressed. You might want to
take a look at it for the lab -- you just need one moderately beefy PC
and a bunch of thin clients (or any PC with or without a hard drive).
I just saw a set of four HP thin clients on sale on eBay for about
$200 (about £100) sans display, so it can be done pretty cheaply, and
you don't have to worry about LDAP or another user synchronization.


I'm in London too (well, Middlesex, which sort of counts). Let me know
if you want to try setting one up. I'd like practice on putting a
larger network together.
