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.

With all due respect, you are incorrect. VNC can have several users on the same server simultaneously, each in an entirely separate session.
In fact when I was in university (I just graduated and the class to which I am referring did things this way until fall of 2003), the preferred method of working in the FreeBSD environment was to ssh in from our windows box at home, start up a vnc session and then connect (the window manager was WindowMaker). There could be (and were) numerous students on the same machine at the same time.

In fairness to you, you are correct for VNC on Windows, but that is not where VNC was originally designed or most effective. My apologies if you meant VNC for Windows, but you did not specify.
