"Hewlett-Packard on Monday will unveil a new line of so-called
thin-client computers, dubbed the Entria. ...a thin-client is a
stripped-down PC that runs programs off of a powerful server
computer instead of from the unit on the desk."
"Two of the new Entria models are HP designs and expand the
company's use of the upstart Linux operating system to a new
HP's decision to adopt Linux for thin-clients makes a lot of
sense, said Joe Ferlazzo, analyst with Technology Business
'You're going to see companies looking more and more to Linux
for their thin-client environments,' said Ferlazzo. 'You can scale
Linux down to the bare bones, if you need. And it's free. There are
no client licenses.' "
"The Entria L and X are the HP-designed models, which run on
Linux and use Web browser Netscape Communicator 4.6 to connect to
other systems on a corporate network."
