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.

Ofcourse, its all possible. Is there a X client frontend too? Using NX (http://www.nomachine.com) might be faster than VNC (and/or Citrix, RDP).

How fast is this Transmeta CPU compared to say a Duron 800? If its about the same i think its very fast for a thinclient. Also, one important advantage of the Crusoe is that it doesn't use a lot of electricity.

Finally, don't forget the price of $350 is for one only. When you buy more you pay less, relatively.. ;)

PS: thanks for XFce. XFce4 is great!
