 DiscoverStation: Multi-headed Linux machine

This is a new twist on the terminals hooked to a computer idea. You put in extra video cards, USB keyboards, hook monitors to the cards, and bang you have a multi-headed Linux box. Pretty cool.

"By combining a mixture of proprietary administrative tools with a modified Red Hat distribution and a GNOME desktop, Userful has updated the concept of timesharing by adapting it to a personal computer. The result is DiscoverStation, a hardware and software solution that connects as many as 10 terminals to a single computer."
