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.

At first I was thinking, why buy this when you can get a walmart PC for 199. But then I thought of work where we have about 100 PCs. If I could replace each of those PCs with these and a single server to support them, I would save a bundle on IT and power consumption. As our needs grow the difference will only get bigger. For work this would be pretty cool. <BR> Now for home I would love a $99 to $150 thin client to put in the kitchen, and maybe one on my mini-desk in my bed room. A extra networked media box on my PC in the living room and that would be perfect. In any case, once I figured out that im not the target market for this device, it made more sence.
