Default Anyone running a normal or modded thin client?

I came across an HP T610 WES(XPe) mini-PC HTPC.

I figured it was cute and it would be nice to have as a garage computer. But it is a thin client and I have not set one of those us before. Do I need a Thin Server or something? Can it be swapped out with a different mobo and run as a regular comp? I am exploring my choices.

I am wondering how hard it would be to run a VM of Windows XP server after I beef up my computer a bit and keep it minimized and connect to it...

Wow. This looks really cool...

But, what if I want to convert a thin machine to a full PC and just connect to the network via wifi or something like that?

I am running a single-core thin client with upgraded RAM (Running Slackware to keep it lean and mean) and an SSD (powered off a 5v USB header w/ a custom-soldered cable I made) on a internal SATA port that was unused by default as a thin client.

I mainly use it as a one-trick-pony ssh-tunnel server.

They are CHEAP on eBay for like an older model 2+ core... Make sure it has a SATA header, or you can get a SSD for an internal connector.

I have a Core-2-Duo running Win 7
