I'd be more than happy than to collaborate. Right now the Excalibur
System is sittiing on two VMWare images, the client on my MacBook and
the server on my media center. I've been using this to demo out the
system to the faculty. I hope to get actual hardware by next week.

The thin client OS is available at . I haven't made a
Live CD of the server yet but I hope to do so by the end of this week.

Let's keep in touch,
