Krsnendu, the VMware beta server requires 512 meg of ram for a minimal
install. If you are using K12LTSP for more than a few clients, you
hopefully would have quite a bit more ram already. VMware server can be
sluggish on graphics and I/O unless you install the VMware Tools. I
would think that the additional overhead could hurt K12LTSP performance
unless you have great hardware.
