Re: [K12OSN] new win xp thin client from MS



I'm thinking about the schools that I work with, and none of them have
the funds to pay for this as a solution.

1.  Workstation OS (cost unknown)
2.  Terminal Services CALs
3.  User CALs
4.  Hardware required for a MS server.

Yes, you are re-using hardware, which is good, but that won't save a
whole lot of money in the big picture, I don't think.

I think it is a smart move by Microsoft, but I wonder how much it will
actually impact the adoption of LTSP.  If anything, it might enhance
the visibility of thin client computing in schools and actually
benefit the LTSP community.
