I just tested the NWEA client on a MS 2003 Terminal Server and it seems to
run just fine.  The client is actually quite nice to deal with since you
can just run it from a network share and don't actually have to install
it on every PC.

Another post in this thread asked about needing sound for NWEA and as
far as I know, none of the NWEA tests utilize sound at all.

I did a quick test of it under Wine and it seems to work fine too.  The
text shows up as boxes in a couple unimportant areas, but other than
that it works fine.
