Home much data is going over the network for a remote client? The app
is running on the server, isn't it? I do remember the bad old days with
X (circa ''94) when any mouse movement or window resize swamped a 10Mb
USB 1.1 is faster than a T1 link. So it will serve for Trixbox that
does not have a lot of connections. Just fine for a demo box or two.
I will also be looking at what it will take to replace the micro-ITX
card (find others with same attachment locations?). As $81 for a
micro-ITX case and power supply is a deal itself...
