Servers don't have to be bigger or more powerful than deskops, my home  
server is only a P4 3GHz with 2GB Ram and lots of hard drives.  If I  
could afford it I'd replace it with a nice small Atom based machine  
(actually with the savings in power alone could possibly pay for  
itself in a year).

Yep this venue I mention above will hopefully be running an Ubuntu  
based LTSP installation.

Being a 'music cafe' they might even be able to do some African themed  
music and sell cans of Ubuntu cola :-D

I'm hoping we can get the LTSP installation installed by April, then  
with any luck we could hold a local Ubuntu release party :-)
