Mass deployment

Ok, I glanced over the earlier DP LTSP post and I thought I should let out this brain fart.

LTSP sucks, because:

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?

Webconverger typically replaces Windows on PCs and is deployed in public and business environments for ease of deployment and privacy. Once installed it auto-updates making it painless to maintain. Try it where you exclusively use the only viable open platform... the Web!
