  • WT1200 is not Linux-based

    Winterm WT1200, or 1xxx series in general, has NOTHING to do with Linux, it runs Wyse Thin OS (WTOS - formally Blazer), which is proprietary OS developed by Wyse, and it fits 512 kB of flash memory in case of WT1200 (AFAIR WT1200 does not have NAND flash at all). Linux is used in WT5xxx series.
  • HP Compaq t5700 uses a riser-card for PCI device

    Onboard PCI slot is not meant to have PCI device directly inserted in it. HP Compaq t5700 can be equipped with special riser-card and bigger case, and PCI card is mounted vertically, not horizontally (moreover, it is upside-down). Part of case is replaced with bigger case (that has hole) from kit with riser card.
