Linux and thin clients

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Apr 14, 2005 7:30 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story

In many respects, thin client computing is very old; the typical mainframe model, with a large central server and many dumb terminals attached to it, closely resembles thin client computing. Thin clients, though, give users the ability to run GUI programs. Before going too far with a desktop Linux deployment, you may want to consider a Linux thin client solution. It's not for everybody, but some sites can benefit from it.
