Multiseat systems provide multiple graphical interface hardware sets (monitor/keyboard/mouse/optionally sound) so that several people can use one computer at a time. They’re ideal for libraries, Internet cafes, desktop home computing, classrooms, call centers, and other high density, cost-sensitive environments.
When you put two to seven users on one standard white box PC (instead of individual PCs), the hardware, system administration, and power savings add up quickly.
I keep getting inquiries about doing Multiseat X under Linux using X.org 6.9 (X11R6.9/7.0, which is now in pre-release testing), so I’ve put together a temporary mini-HOWTO.
What uses can you see for Multiseat?
