Yes, I noticed that also, and I like seeing a corporate mindset that 
supports LTSP architectures.  My concern would be upgrading the kernel, 
X11, or anything else for which there were a newly discovered security 
hole or other serious bug, given that these thin clients seem to have an 
embedded Linux-based OS, and even a user app or two (Web browser) in 
them.  With TFTP-booting thin clients (say, an old Pentium), that 
kernel/X11/etc. code can be easily upgraded.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
