Ok, I glanced over the earlier DP LTSP post and I thought I should let out this brain fart.
LTSP sucks, because:
- It needs a super strong server to do the heavy lifting
- A decent network design to go along with it
- I recall LTSP not making use of the hard drive. That’s stupid. Every computer has a hard drive.
The good thing about LTSP is that it is very easy to get a number of machines booting up Debian, which is impressive.
So really mass deployment in my mind needs to be with the debian installer’s preseed technology and apt-get updating itself. Are there any guides how to make a Debian machine auto-update? Like RH’s up2date? Ubuntu’s gnome updating thing is painful.
Any other better ideas?
