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.
