Multiplier maximizes productivity

Filed under

One of the most exciting of many projects under way at R Cubed Technologies is the Multiplied Linux Desktop Strategy.

Working with one of its partners, Omni Technologies of Canada, R Cubed has developed a system that allows up to 10 students to work at the same time with a single Linux PC. Novell Equipment runs the multiplied software.

Nathan "Nate" Rockhold, president of R Cubed, said an Omni vice president "brought a lot of business to us. He approached us because of the reputation we're getting. ... It's always good when the vice president said, 'We're going to make you rich.' That's always a good way to get an entrepreneur's attention."

The system is being used in Danville School District 118. Danville bought the certified Multiplied SLED Hardware Bundle from R Cubed.

Rockhold said that 10 monitors can be hooked into "one souped-up" desktop computer. The Danville schools bought an eight-user Linux Desktop Bundle.

What Are Linux Meta-packages?

I was recently in a discussion about meta-packages, and realized many users don’t know what they are or what they do. So, let’s see if we can clear-up the mystery. Meta-packages in a nutshell A ‘meta-package’ is a convenient way to bulk-install groups of applications, their libraries and documentation. Many Linux distributions use them for a variety of purposes, from seeding disk images that will go on to become new releases, to creating software “bundles” that are easy for a user to install. A meta-package rarely contains anything other than a changelog and perhaps copyright information, it contains no applications or libraries within itself. The way they work is by having a list of “dependencies” that the package manager reads. The package manager then goes to the repositories to find the dependencies and installs them.
