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.

Real World...

I wish I could "test drive" some of these thin client solutions, or at least see them in real world, production enviroments.

For $350 (without a CRT/LCD), it seems like it's kinda-pricey for what it does. I will concede though, that the price has to do with the small footprint, I am sure.

Right now I am using old laptops as x-terminals, they are "ok", but I'd sure like to see that HP (or even what LTSP/DisklessWorkstations.com offers) in action.

With audio being "iffy" according to various posts on LTSP, will sound even work on the client?

I'd even be somewhat satisfied with a decent review of thin clients in *nix-only shops. Almost all of the reviews I have seen are all, Citrix this, RDesktop that. Not much on the X side.
