Sun Ray at Dublin Institute of Technology

Very cool story here about the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) School of Computing installing a Sun Ray system -- Dublin Institute of Technology installs thin client computer lab. Damien Farnham has more on the project, but it's cool to see that students were involved in the implementation and that the Irish OpenSolaris User Group holds meetings there.

According to the article, "The SunRay laboratory will provide staff and students with access to Solaris 10, Suse LINUX and Microsoft Windows." And it's also great to see comments about the importance of UNIX skills in education as well -- "It is not reasonable to expect computing graduates to be competitive upon entering the workforce if they are not equally competent in using Unix and Windows systems, said Mark Deegan, lecturer at the DIT School of Computing. "We must present students with equal opportunity to develop desktop and system administration skills on both Windows and Unix systems."
