How does this video save someone time? Did I miss something? All I see is some guy booting into openthinclient OS.

Where is the tutorial? How was openthinclient configured on the server? What steps need to be taken?

I downloaded openthinclient, installed it on 2 different servers

(Ubuntu and Windows) and configured it like the openthinclient web site said.

On my Windows server, the tftp of the openthinclient OS fails and on the Linux server it starts conversation, gets OFFER, sends the PXE proxy offer and then ignores the PXE proxy offer.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.
