thats the smaller issue.... 

one big point is, if you have a separate system, you need to maintain in
fact two distributions, thats a unnecessary waste of manpower....

another thing is that our hardware detection as well as xorg detection
(which you also see on the live CD in quite the same setup as in ubuntu
ltsp) is able to detect all parts of the clients and set the default
settings at bootime... i wouldnt want to have to fiddle with config
files all day to get a basic ltsp environment up (execpt for tuning
probably) ....
