I like xterms for hostile environments, such as my garage.  Normally 
garages aren't so hostile, but the Canadian winter can be pretty cold - 
even in the far south where I am. (Think like....Buffalo, NY) 
Not to mention the temperature change / humidity factor of pulling in a 
warm car that is wet or full of snow.  I don't figure hard drives would 
like this all that much....

Over time it has turned into a xterminal collection (I'm not sure why - 
I don't have room for them really).  I've got some NCD's (Explora 452 
and 700 and Thinstar variants).  I think I also have a HP Envizex, 
Envizex II and a really old Neoware. 
Some of the unix NCD models like the Explora 700 had 100Mbit network, 
and NAS (network audio system).

Currently hooked up is a NCD Thinstar 400 with RDP and the X server 
installed.   The only thing I dislike about this one is there is no 
network audio on this model, nor does the old version of terminal 
services client support sound :-(

If anyone needs/wants a Explora 452 or an Envizex, I've got one for ya!
