Re: [K12OSN] State of K12LTSP?



Hey Eric, good to hear from you again!

You know the thought crossed my mind that until LTSP 5 is integrated into Fedora, maybe the EL versions of K12LTSP would be enough for everybody (and cease working on Fedora/LTSP4.2 based K12LTSP).  Just a thought.  I'm sure the Fedora users will have something to say about it.  But I'm pretty happy with my K12LTSP 5.0EL

Thanks for all your hard work.
