LTSP also lets you provide settings for groups or workstations or for individual workstations, identified by IP address, MAC address or hostname. This allows you to set which sessions are seen on which workstations and even to configure specific hardware for that workstation. The following lts.conf file shows an example of how this can be done:
[default] SCREEN_01 = shell [LINUXER] SCREEN_03 = ldm [12:34:56:78:9a:bc] XSERVER = ati X_MOUSE_DEVICE = /dev/ttyS0 SCREEN_03 = ldm SCREEN_05 = citrix [192.168.0.4] SCREEN_04 = vnc1
You could fill a book with examples of uses and configurations for LTSP. I've been working with it since version 1.0, going on ten years now, and with each new version, there are useful new features. For further technical information on the project, go to the LTSP Wiki, and if you get a chance, please support the project with a small donation.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
