I can't answer for all of the schools, but I can tell you that one of the schools, a public
middle school in San Francisco, where I am the lead sys admin, uses these boxes as desktops
and thin clients. Some of the boxes have 512 MB of RAM. Those are work stations. The rest
are thin clients. All, of course, are Free Open Source Software boxes. My thanks on behalf
of the kids and the school to James Burgett and his colleagues at ACCRC.org and Andrew Fife
and his colleagues at Untangle.com for making this event a huge success.
