See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Userful (half of the article is
actually marketing, but it still contains information) - as I understand
it, it is a modified Fedora 8 that uses a multihead configuration
and/or virtualized Xservers. Sounds somehow complicated, but, well, as
long as it works.
If I get it right, they use fat clients / stand alone systems, just
attaching 10 display/keyboard/mouse combinations on each (I guess
five dualhead grafic cards, maybe using pci risers and usb-hubs). But I
don't quite understand why they should virtualize the Xservers - they
could just run multiple Xclients, but frankly I have only heard about
multihead systems, never tried one myself.
