    Question Which distro


    Hi, I know its probably been asked before but I can't find anything. Sorry.

    I am thinking of starting up my own internet cafe.

    One server and 10 thin clients

    By thin clients I mean actual thin clients, not just old PCs. (About 800mhz, 256mb ram, 128mb flash)

    Any idea on the software I would need to install to get this setup working. I don't want it to be complicated for the customer, no admin rights or anything. Just firefox, open office, Gaim and possibly notepad and calculator.

    Would prefer KDE but will go with some other windows manager if there is enough reason.

    The bare minimum basically. I also would like it to be possible for a client to plug in their own USB pen to access files from. (Kids doing homework etc)

    Any ideas? All ideas and suggestions are welcome.

    Gentoo if you know what your doing, Ubuntu if not.
