That presentation is misleading and has some false statements in it. For example, I have no issues incorporating LTSP into my current MS infrastructure. I also noticed that all of the resources for this presentation were from Microsoft.......

I checked out their site and came across a windows CE vs Linux terminal... it was less than impressive. Neat concept, but the company doesn't seem to think much of LTS.

These are cool.  I sent an email telling them that they should configure

the clients to use PXE or Etherboot in addition to RDP and Citrix. 

Perhaps if several from this list sent emails, they might listen and

modify them a little.

Howdy All,

Just thought I'd throw this out. Maybe most have seen/heard of

these ?This rig looks like it would be the cat's meow for a school

scenario. All three models are PoE compliant,This would be a God's send

in itself, if you are like our school with "not enough power outlets" in

each room.All would have to be done is have all PoE compliant

switches,which can be had for about $310 for a 24 port with gig

uplinks.Get rid of all of the power cord mumbo-jumbo/spaghetti.

Think of it ,no knobs or edges or  buttons for the kids to tear off :)

The only trick would be to see if the AMD Alchemy video would be able to

work? I talked to a distributor for these and he told me they are now

available in the states. They were having troubles with the voltages,on

the prototypes brought here to the states, as these are manufactured in

the Middle East. He told me that his company fitted these ,several

hundred into a new corporate offices,and works very well. But they were

RDP'ing to WTS server.

they only require 5w of power which would be sweet as well. 0 noise &

probably almost 0 heat output.

It's worth taking a look at it, when you have time.



Take Care,

Barry Cisna
