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.

DevOps represents a profound change from the way most IT departments have traditionally worked: from siloed teams and high-anxiety releases to everyone collaborating on uneventful and more frequent releases of higher-quality code. It doesn't matter how large or small an organization is, or even whether it's historically slow moving or risk averse — there are ways to adopt DevOps sanely, and get measurable results in just weeks.
