An anonymous reader writes "Massive Ubuntu Linux desktop deployment at lower cost

Boot easily more than 100 workstations from one low-end server in single read-only image over network. This saves time and money. The main goals were tasked with finding new solutions that improve desktop performance for end users and decrease the amount of work per desktop for administrators. The selected solution was found in combining known technologies like networked booting, a read-only system disk image with live-cd techniques and network attached storage.

Paper A paper is written for decision makers (Chapt. 2, non-technical) and system administrators (Chapt. 3, technical), but may be interesting for a wider audience as well."
