Re: [K12OSN] Review of NorhTec MicroClient Jr. thin client

Hmm...interesting...I remember a similar discussion in a previous thread about this.  My buddy, whom I set up with K12LTSP a little while back, has a Pentium-120 that he finally let me turn into a thin client for his son.  It was indeed awful trying to run TuxType or TuxMath...until I dropped a 10/100 card and an ATI Radeon 7500 into it.  Now it's great.

Could that be the issue--the video chipset?

Do you GNU!?
Microsoft Free since 2003--the ultimate antivirus protection!

Thanks, Robert. I have a couple here in the shop. 
They are quite usable as thin clients. Since they are rather slow, they
won't push the resources of the server too much. 

In prior tests with much faster hardware, apps like tuxmath would bog
down the server. But a 200 MHz CPU just can't pit bits to pixels fast
enough to bog things down running tuxmath :)  I only have 2 of these and
I estimate it would take at around 4 to provide the load running tuxmath
that a single 700 MHz Pentium thinkpad can pull on the same server.

As a general purpose student client they work very well!
