I think I know the answer, but I figured I'd ask.  I've run
sysstat....vmstat...etc.  No issues with RAM (I NEVER go into swap).....I
almost never have disk wait issues....so the only issue left....is CPU.  I
notice it badly when kids are in FireFox or some other web browser and
playing Flash activities...etc.  I also notice a huge jump in CPU when the
kids first launch apps....once loaded things calm down a lot. 
Anyway....would OpenMosix help out here by putting more CPU power into the
mix?  Not sure how OpenMosix works.  Also...will web browsers benefit?  Or
do they not migrate?  Can anyone point me to a how to that would work with
my K12LTSP 4.1 server?
