I've just been testing an XP system that is quite reasonable.
Totally silent. Lower power consumption than my RPC. Very compact.
Potentially very good to compliment a RISC OS system.
It is a wyse Winterm running XPe.
It's still slow to start (no change there), but doesn't have OE, comes
setup looking more like 2000 and there is no "I sell my computers soul
to Bill" agreement. It has no drives and OS in ROM. (Get virused, power
off and you're clean)
It is quite a nice internet station. (I wouldn't want to use windows
for much else at home), the problem is, I suspect, the cost is greater
than a cheap PC.
I won't be pleased to give it back.
