Virtual Elementary School

Keith Ward, the editor of Virtualization Review (our new mag/Web site/newsletter about all things virtual) recently visited an elementary school in Baltimore. No, Keith wasn't there to bone up on his grammar skills, but to find out how this school is using virtualization to literally multiply the access kids have to computers.

With a cool device from NComputing, one low-end computer (we're talking 512MB of RAM) is turned into three. All you need is a little black box from NComputing and some extra keyboards, monitors and mice, which are almost free these days. Good work, Keith-o!

Check out Keith's blog, Mental Ward, here.
