Globally, more than 800 XTERM are powered by the MILLE-XTERM open-source project. The technology is currently tested in small testbeds and it is expected that more than 2000 XTERM will be using MILLE-XTERM by 2006.
This projet was made possible by the finantial contribution from the SchoolNet program from the Gouvernment of Canada.
