Interesting, what specifically performed poorly, and what was unstable?

As you may know, we are working on the long-term LTSP5-based successor 
to the old K12LTSP distribution.  Your testing of this would be 
extremely useful because I want to know if we fall into the same traps 
as Edubuntu.  Unique about this image however is you can run the entire 
server from a USB stick without installing anything on your hard drive! 
  You can do a temporary test with your 24 PC network for example, 
rebooting the server to the USB stick, and be up and running serving 
your clients within minutes for this test.

Working on Beta 2... hopefully should be ready next week.
