Xfce This summer, in the beginning of August, HP has released a new Linux based thin client. Unlike the other models from the "t5000" line of HP thin clients which use Microsoft Windows CE as their embedded operating system, the "t5515" is based on the Linux operating system. This is also, to my knowledged, the first device that is using Xfce for its graphical user interface.

Just wondering if you can provide a link to Xfce - there doesn't seem to be enough in the review ;-)

I dont start Gnome vs. KDE wars on Slashdot, I use Xfce 99.9% of the time I am using Linux.

It was nice to see Xfce included in Fedora Core 2, however it would have been nice to have it as an install option (instead of mounting the CDs and installing the RPMs manually). It would be useful if RedHat/Fedora could populate the Xfce menus with items for installed/important programs too. That's just my opinion.

Xfce 3 is also an awesome way to resurrect an old computer. Although it would be nice if Knoppix 3.6 came with version 4 instead of 3.

Itís easy to make themes too Ė this is my only attempt:

This HP Thin Client is nice. I need a new toy but I donít think the accounting department will agree :-(
