Important blog entry from Jonathan Carter on tuxlab-os:
tuxlabs is an edubuntu-based ltsp linux for schools, based in South
Africa. The relevance for this list is:
1: using XFCE, from Xubuntu, in place of gnome to relieve the strain on
the X server.
2: a live vd chooser, that allows a graphical install (in 128mb ram)
without having to boot into the full desktop
Lots of other cool stuff as well, like a very cool online assistant.
More details can be found at http://www.tuxlab-os.co.za/ (not yet
available for general download - due 2007).
It's worth considering how tuxlab-os and xubuntu could work together, in
bug-squashing and documentation, for example.
