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.

Memory usage

I noticed when using XFCE 4.0.5 on top of NetBSD, my machine was using around 45-50 MB of RAM in a rather default configuration. My Ubuntu Linux setup with Gnome 2.8 on an iMac uses around 65-70 MB in a similar configuration. It's too bad Mozilla browsers use up so much RAM. It would be nice if a GOOD browser with solid CSS/DHTML support would come out with a footprint of 5-10 megs MAX.
