Description Karl Mikaelsson cendio 2015-06-24 17:11:36 CEST
Looks like Lenovo is selling/branding thin clients these days. We had requests from customers that we produce a client packaging for these, so we should look into if it's possible.

> VXL Instruments is Lenovo's preferred Thin Client provider, offering to Lenovo 
> customers worldwide the latest in thin client technology including Thin Client 
> desktops, Zero Clients and Thin mobile devices. With the growing demands of 
> desktop virtualization and secure cloud access, VXL can offer devices no matter 
> what is driving your endpoint; VMware View, Citrix XenApp or XenDesktop and 
> Microsoft Hypervisor or Terminal Services. 

Right now, they have what appears to be four distict series, but only three appears to be from VXL.

- ITONA K: ARM CPU, unknown Linux operating system
- ITONA F: VIA Nano CPU, XPe, WES2009, WES7 or "GIO Linux" operating systems
- ITONA Md: VIA Eden CPU, WES2009, WES7 or "GIO Linux" operating systems
- Lenovo TINY: Intel i5 CPU, WES7 operating system

We don't know much about the Linux operating systems on these terminals - the ITONA K series doesn't mention "GIO" - but a company called DevonIT seems to be involved by some means here. The customer mentioned LeTOS being used on their terminal (model unknown). http://www.devonit.com/lenovo seems to suggest that they deliver some kind of Linux-based thin client operating system to Lenovo.

We should find out if it's interesting and possible to build and/or package a ThinLinc client for any of these devices.

We haven't seen any user interest in these devices in many years. Closing.
