That thing's got an Ethernet port -- what else do you need, but that, and
FreeNX, or some other remote desktop service? Too bad it ain't got no GBit
Ethernet, though.

Why does a development machine node need a head? Build farm does nicely.
My dual LCDs have four video inputs (2x DVI and 2x VGA), that does plenty for
PC dual head, a HDTV DVD and a Mini.

VNC is thoroughly obsolete. FreeNX rock totally.

Speaking of which, have you see the solid-state (DMD with LED lamp) one? Two
different ones have been demoed (it's CES, isn't it?).
