Flash Drives Sanity Check

Hi List !
I was wondering if anyone had any experience
of running FreeBSD out of Compact Flash ?
The HDD to Flash adapters are around 15GBP
here and 1GB of Flash about 70GBP
I know there are some projects around that use
Compact Flash (like Openbrick) but I was thinking
more in terms of running a stripped down desktop
Does CF stand lots of read / write operations ?
I read somewhere that it has quite low life
My main idea is to use the Mini-ITX platform to
build a tiny workstation that has a stripped down
FreeBSD with something like Fluxbox and to
get the whole thing to run from the CF using
a USB Stick for storing work.
Have I lost the plot here OR is this idea viable ?
Any comments welcome :)
