Thin Clienting

Times of India has a report on OracleWorld, with a quote by Sun’s Scott McNealy: “On the digital divide, McNealy said that countries like India could have ‘thin clienting’, a model that envisages a lot of not-so-powerful computers connected to servers at the backend to keep down the costs of spreading IT at schools and remote areas.” This is exactly what I have been advocating for emerging markets like India – affordable computing via the use of thin clients, thick servers and open-source software.
