[Server-devel] We need: examples of XS hardware in use --

List, David, Reuben,

We are getting increasing enquiries "what hardware can we use for an
XS in a school with N laptops?", and frankly the
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/XS_Recommended_Hardware is a bit slim on
concrete recommendations.

So I need your help -- I've added some info in the "hardware known to
work" section, but I'd like David to put more info on the exact model
of MSI Wind he's using, additional hardware, number of laptops
supported, and any extra notes.

Similarly, Reuben, I need more info on what hw the OLPCCorps crowd is using.

And anyone else that's running an XS (hi Hamilton!)... we need your hw
profile and your numbers.

Additionally, I've added a 'server sizing' section. It'll be great to
get corroboration that the CPU/RAM to number of users match what you
are using in the field, and whether your server gets in trouble when
usage spikes.
