I don't trust IBM as a software company. This may be a nice offering, but they had a similar offering in the past, Linux based ThinClient Manager. IBM is notorious for pulling support and all trace of a product at their whim. That nice pile of hardware and software may well be scrap 2-5 years later while it still has useful life left, and forget about updates. Stick with RedHat and SUSE if you want well supported Linux.
