Steve:
But, you still have to patch them, right?

        That sounds vaguely familiar :)
        
        We're using the same HP TCs as Greg for some odd reason, one
nice thing about them is they come with Sygate installed and active, so
the advantages that you seek with neolinux (as we did) you also get with
the HPs. i.e. - your IA guy can't see them  :D

                I'm trying to stay away from XPe because of the
patching.
                We tried a Neolinux client a few months ago and we had a
lot of trouble with CACs.  When you took the card out, the system would
lock (as it should), but then you could not unlock it.  It was like the
it could not detect the card again.
                 
                Has anyone used the Wyse Thin OS Thin clients?

                        HP's will do it.  i have used them with a CAC
and they work fine.  HP bought Neoware and those models are now featured
in the HP lineup.  their Neolinux client works with CAC although it is
sensitive to the readers you use.  I deployed a lot of T5270's running
XPe.  We had issues, but not with CAC.

                                Hi all, we're looking to replace our
Wyse 941G TCs with newer ones.   They've been really good TCs; the only
thing I hate is patching Windows XP embedded.

                                I'm looking to replace them with Linux
TCs or any other OS that is pretty secure and does not require much
patching. 
                                The TCs are automatically configured to
launch an ICA Desktop session to our Citrix servers.  Another
requirement is that they must support CACs (Smart Cards)

                                Any recommendations?
