A short description of the workstation profile
It is possible to install Skolelinux with a workstation profile using newer hardware. These computers have all the software installed locally and all the user processes running locally. However, the autentication of the users and storing of the user data are done on the file/network server.
When a workstation is installed directly from the Skolelinux CD, Skolelinux will install all necessary software and automatically detect the hardware.
Maintenance of a workstation can be done centrally by simple actions, but every workstation has to be upgraded and maintained locally.
