I've never tried it for production - just some oddball stuff and
testing.  I have plenty of old PC's around and it didn't make sense
to pay for an extra VMware license to replace them, but now that it
is free I am trying it again.  Unfortunately I'm having some problem
making it work on the one server I have configured for thin clients
and haven't had time to pin down the problem.  From other use, I'd
guess that the real problem is that the memory isn't shared like
normal apps so extra RAM might help, and it probably wouldn't be
a problem for occasional use by teachers.
