Greetings, please comment on this hardware,
The VIA EPIA Mini-ITX mainboard with 800mhz
This board has onboard video, LAN and audio...
CPU: 800mhz VIA C3 E-series (socket 370)
$118 US
These boards are 170mm x 170mm, nice.
Cheap terminal gear.
Any experience ? I would like to build a portable say 6 workstation box all contained in on box. Just add monitors keyboards and mice and an internet connection. The K12LTSP server would also be in this box but does not count as a workstation. Small switch inside. Entirely self contained.
Please comment on wireless mice and keyboards also...Can you get 10 keyboard/mice to work on seperate channels ?

These Systems are pretty nice. However, many people have had problems getting all integreated components to work out of the box on all Linux Distrobutions.
You should be fine, it just might take some major tweaking to get everything working perfectly.
Be aware that TV-out does not work under linux at all at this time.
