Multiplier maximizes productivity

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.

  • dmMediaConverter Review - Converting Videos Has Never Been Easier
    dmMediaConverter is described by its developer as an FFmpeg frontend (GUI), but regular users only need to know that it's an application that allows them to quickly convert files from one format to another, in a simple and intuitive way. It's not the best looking out there, but it gets the job done.

  • Semi-Official Google Drive Support For Linux Arrives, What's Next?
    Three years ago, when a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client, Google would bring them to the appropriate download page, which of course, is based off of the operating system that user is running on. If a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client while running on Linux, they’d land on a page where the message reads: “Not (yet) supported for Linux.” So, what’s the deal with Google not developing a sync client for Linux users, seeing as to how they build a lot of their things using Linux? There’s one simple answer to that, unfortunately. Windows is mainstream, so a lot of their focus is put on what a majority of people use. The bigger the market, the more money in their pockets, of course. But don’t fear, change is near!
