For u guys who wants to see wat it is, go to:

http://www.ltsp.org/

Maybe they are so stingy about the harddisk price hahaha. Especially when those terminals that requires a new hardware in it cost more $$$$. It is definitely a giant server they are talking bout here, i agree with u ricky. Another thing is it get's really ugly when the server is down.


In my former University, these terminals are used as a tool to search for books in the library.

Here is another link that i found on diskless workstations:
