I think it would be fun (and cheap and quiet) to build a classroom/lab 
server out of a mac mini or equivalent small form factor box.  The 2 gig 
  RAM limit would probably be the limiting factor for how many clients 
you could handle (it does have a Gig ethernet port) especially if you 
have a separate file server for the home directories.  Has anyone tried it?
If the next version has a core2 duo instead of the current core duo 
processor it would be even better.
