I've tested this $100 computer as a thin client with K12LTSP and it works
fine one you set it to boot from the NIC:
It comes with a 200 MHz CPU and 128 MB RAM. The shared video memory can be
set to a number of settings. 8 or 16 MB works fine. I have tested the
sound, so I can't say whether it works or not with K12LTSP.
