I run the community site for the JDS Linux desktop. We're not affiliated

A suggestion at this point. Sun's Java desktop system performs
exceptionally on AMD hardware. It uses older and more stable components
built to run on Windows 98 style hardware.

Contact me directly and I will arrange for free software for your school
via contacts in the Edusoft division at Sun. They are very generous with
schools and will give you all the administration utilities also.

I saw the JDS at Educause. It looked pretty fast, but that was on a dual opteron with lots of RAM.

It was a clean looking desktop. We turned on the 3dwm and had some fun with it.
