A multiseat system provides multiple monitors, keyboards, and mice (or other pointing devices) to provide independent GUI environments for multiple simultaneous users of a single computer. This project is initially aimed at bringing together the various pieces necessary to provide easy-to-configure multiseat support in Fedora 11.
To save on hardware costs, electricity, and system administration effort. To provide access to more people for less money. To effectively utilize system resources.
But also to showcase the power and flexibility of Open Source software. To weed out corner-case bugs in in the various layers of the graphical desktops. And to be cool!
Multiseat on Fedorahosted
This Fedorahosted project exists as a collaboration point for multiseat technologies. Most of the code will reside in the constituent packages, though configuration tool code may live here.
