Re: [K12OSN] RE: Future LTSP direction: Local Apps

we're using it (booting from USB keys). we gave it to students.
here is a SIMPLE install : http://www.pendrivelinux.com/

students have their ENTIRE desktop, favorite apps and document with them all the time!
we consider high end hardware with no hard disks as stations we students can plug their OS into.
(it's just an experiment with technology and it's not a cheap solution!)
