I can only agree that setting up defaults is number two after having
setup an LTSP installation. I have managed a couple of those and
finding where some non-native applications on linux stores their
preferences can be a real pain. Openoffice and Firefox arent very
multi-user friendly. Native Linux applications that makes use of /etc
and  ~/. are really no problem but can be a hassle for non-linux

Sabayon is really a key technology imho for Linux on larger desktop
rollouts. The idea behind it is very nice and the concept easy to
grasp even for a complete beginner.

I think the problem is that the bigger vendors have dropped the
desktop from their current agenda except canonical. Sabayon is in my
opinion much better than Microsofts AD Group Policies and really an
area where Linux shines. All it needs is polishing and more hammering
on it.

I really wish i was a developer and could help out. Your mail got me
all riled up to try and pick up programming and do something in return
for LTSP wich i am totally inlove with.
