And for a slightly different variation on the concept of mimimal - it
would be fun to have a 'thin-client' variation that would boot 'live'
from USB/iso/pxe with just enough to run native X, x2go, vnc client,
or freerdp -preferably with a way to pre-configure the targets and an
optional full-screen startup of one of those apps.   Maybe spice could
work that way too.
