Re: [K12OSN] thin clients

In this thread about thin clients, I thought I'd chime in and tell you
guys what I'm using as my main workstation.

First of all, we do "eat our own dogfood" here in the LTSP development
lab.  In fact, we have for many years.

My setup on my desk is:

  HP 5505 thin client (733mhz Transmeta, 128mb of ram)
  HP 2335 23" Flat panel
  Apple Mac keyboard
  Logitech wireless mouse

The setup works GREAT!

My latest addition is the HP 23" flat panel.  It does 1920x1200, and the
Ati graphics chipset in the 5505 thin client drives it perfectly.  Of
course I had to add a custom modeline, but that just shows the
flexibility of LTSP.

I'm using the Apple Mac keyboard, because it is the best USB keyboard
that I've been able to find.  And believe me, I've tried many.
The keyboard works great, but I did have to re-map the "apple" key to be
an "Alt" key.
