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.

xfce reminds me a lot of CDE. That's not a bad thing.

Lightweight, simple, fast and doesn't drag older hardware under. What's not to like?

Wonder if they'll distribute a port to HP-UX? I tried Gnome on it and it was so-so, especially since the latest is 1.4 with no plans on HP's part to port newer versions.. which is why I'm back to CDE there. I could always build gnome 2.x myself, but since the machine is on paid HP support at that jobsite I really should stick to stuff they (HP) approve of.
