K12Linux is a modification to the Centos operating system with the Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP) packages integrated into it. It is designed to be easy to install and configure. K12Linux allows easy deployment of a Linux terminal server, capable of serving entire networks of netboot diskless clients. Clients login to the central terminal server, where they can use any Linux desktop environment (GNOME, KDE, XFCE, etc.) and most desktop applications. Significant long-term cost savings are made possible by central management of software and accounts.
