What is the difference between a thin client and a LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project) server?
Thin Client vs. Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP)


A Thin Client is a computer or device that is designed to be as small and as simple as possible, with minimal resources and features. It is typically used to access a remote server, where all of the processing is done, and the client simply acts as a terminal to display the results.


The Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP) is a set of software and tools that allows administrators to set up a central server that provides remote access to a Linux desktop environment. The LTSP server runs all of the applications and provides a graphical interface to the clients, which can be thin clients or regular PCs. The clients connect to the server over a network and use the X Window System protocol to display the desktop.


In summary, a thin client is a hardware device, whereas LTSP is a software solution that enables a server to host multiple Linux desktop sessions, which can be accessed remotely by thin clients or regular PCs.
