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!
