Look what I have done...I am sure it is little in comparision to what everyone else has done. I only wish I had time to do something like this.
I have run accross DSL in the last week and have completely gone crasy with it. I am not new to Linux but new to mico versions of it. I have been running tests on the possibility of using it for remote offices to connect via noMachine client. Installed VmWare for an Insurance Management software, installed samba to get to a MSSQL server, made a functional CODUO server, and Next will be Java...
Once done with the the remote application access, I will be installing this on a 5 node Cluster as an experiment. It currently boots RedHat 9.0 via bootp so this will make startup a lot faster. Soon this OS will be loaded on flash cards for dumb terminals, if this works and the powers that be like it, I will be purchasing the flash from DSL.
Last but not least, this is coming from a Compaq 1275, 330mhz, 150 megs mem, approx. 7 years old. With Windows 2K on it you could turn it on and go eat diner, come back and maybe you could login...now you hit the power and you can barely scratch your butt before its ready to go with DSL... Works so well I formated the drive and ditched win2k. Thanks for your hard work...
