After 2 Years of Development, LTSP 5.2 Is Out 79 79

The Linux Terminal Server Project has for years been simplifying the task of time-sharing a Linux system by means of X terminals (including repurposed low-end PCs). Now, stgraber writes "After almost two years or work and 994 commits later made by only 14 contributors, the LTSP team is proud to announce that the Linux Terminal Server Project released LTSP 5.2 on Wednesday the 17th of February. As the LTSP team wanted this release to be some kind of a reference point in LTSP's history, LDM (LTSP Display Manager) 2.1 and LTSPfs 0.6 were released on the same day. Packages for LTSP 5.2, LDM 2.1 and LTSPfs 0.6 are already in Ubuntu Lucid and a backport for Karmic is available. For other distributions, packages should be available very soon. And the upstream code is, as always, available on Launchpad."

Me too. Civ is the only game I have installed on my home machine (everything else is on the Wii). Been playing it since I was a Uni student back in the early 90's. I love this game, though I would say that it took me a while to like Civ IV as much as I liked I and III. I imagine I'll be buying V when it comes out too. Sid rocks. Anyone remember the game Colonization? That was cool too.
