The original idea for this project was based on a Solaris server and a Gentoo image for the EFIKA.
This set-up works great!
However, to make sure that administration of the system becomes easier for everyone, and requires even less maintenance, the option exists now to use an entirely Ubuntu based set-up.
The synergy between the sever (can basically be anything, depending on the needs) and the Open Client has been expanded this way to provide a uniform and easy to manage system, all based on Ubuntu.
This means there are two options right now.
The Solaris/Gentoo option for those interested in squeezing every last bit of power out of the system, and a great environment for academic and scientific/engineering work.
The Ubuntu set-up for an easy to manage set-up for use in for example internet cafés and small businesses.
The choice is yours :-)
