[K12OSN] k12ltsp distribution thoughts...

I think as a distro there is a better community built around it. And
great support. I know that setting up another distro with all the basics
such as multimedia, flash, java, etc. takes longer than it does using a
k12ltsp setup. Not too mention the LTSP aspect already being setup as
well. On that note I came across a small issue with a client not booting
up, it was because of a dhcp error. I quickly found the answer in
previous list questions and made an entry in the wiki considering it had
happened before and involved different hardware. My first actual
contribution to the group that has made using Linux at school so easy.
