Add YAST module to set up multiseat installations
Set up a computer with a YAST module to run with multiple graphic cards, mice and keyboards for multiple users at once. The module would allow the administration of "working places".
Currently one can reach sessions only on one screen via the function keys (F7 - F12). I suggest a module which lets the administrator bundle the devices into "seats", i.e. physically separated working places each with their own mouse, keyboard and display. Common use of DVD-reader/burner or card readers could be allowed, USB-sticks could e.g. get assigned hubs.

This is the effort the ubuntu people invest:
CPU-power is abundant in modern machines, so one machine has enough for the easier tasks (browsing, text input etc.) of a whole family. I'd appreciate an easy set up with this feature.
Use of this power in any family's home would be a powerful demonstration of this OS's qualities. It would save money, particularly nice for families with tight budgets and in developing countries.
When multi seat set-ups get more common the feature could be extended to virtual machines, i.e. one machine per seat. Those could be connected (via a virtual net / sockets ...) and run future multi-player games...
