Fedora 14 support already exists.  I just upgrade a F13 LTSP system to 
F14 using the http://www.dageek.co.uk/ltsp/ltsp.repo courtesy of Gavin 
Spurgeon and did not have any issues.  I have not upgraded the chroot 
yet, but the server side works great.  Definitely don't waste any time 
on F14.

For me KDE4 support is a must.  My users all run it on F14 now and do 
not want to "downgrade" to Gnome 2 :)

That being said I tried KDE in EL6 it and it seems to work as well in 
LTSP as could be expected given that not everything works properly even 
without LTSP!

There is something screwy with phonon as I get a boatload of "Unable to 
use the GStreamer Multimedia Backend: The shared library was not found." 

Also, the normal fusefs client filesystem stuff works fine, in the sense 
that the client media is mounted on the server, but there is no 
indication in KDE that this has happened via tie-in to the device 
notifier etc.  That is no different from previous K12Linux, though it 
would be nice to have.
