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...
