I loved those things.  I helped some folks set them up for a K-12LTSP project.

I was under the impression the software was being updated.  Maybe by LTSP?  I will see if I can scratch up the links.

That would be a shame.  Although, I would like to get a couple from eBay to play with.

If it weren't true I would be offended... well maybe not.

Xandros OCE is my latest fave (great aunt's machine), SuSE (I am protesting the "U") is another, but would use IceWM for the window manager.

I would be curious to see if Morphix would run on it.  Couple Morphix with a USB stick and things would be fun...
