At the last PLUG presentation, I mentioned that there is a lot working
happening behind the scenes to make the Linux desktop suck less. The
K12LTSP project does a fine job highlighting many of these suckages ;-)

Today Havoc Pennington posted a paper on "stateless Linux" that
hopes to address many of the issues I've experienced. Fun stuff!

> Hi,
> Red Hat engineering is starting a new project we're calling
> "stateless Linux" for lack of a better name - some components of this
> are already in Rawhide, and others will be appearing shortly.
> We've been keeping the project a little bit quiet at first, but now
> we've written it up in some detail:
>  - an overview document, available from
>    http://people.redhat.com/~hp/stateless/
>  - a HOWTO document and a couple associated RPMs, available from
>    http://people.redhat.com/dmalcolm/stateless/
> There aren't many new RPMs for this, because stateless Linux isn't a
> single codebase or package, it's a set of changes across the
> distribution (you might think of it as a "philosophy"). Most of the
> changes are already in Rawhide (the highlights are mentioned in the
> StatelessLinux.pdf document).
> Appreciate feedback, especially from anyone who has time to try out
> the HOWTO. We expect the code to change quite a bit as issues and
> suggestions come in.
> Havoc
