"First we tried some terminals working with Wyse Thin Clients, and the performance was good enough for administrative applications, but it was rather disappointing for the multimedia applications used to teach the lessons," said Carlos Eduardo Blake Betancourt, Technical Advisor and Supervisor of the Digital Lab at The Valle Real Americano School. "Then we bought some HP t100 Thin Clients that worked way better, but using Windows was just too expensive because of the need to buy licenses for everything. So we started looking for an open source option."
