Case for Thin Clients

Dann Sheridan writes: “Why businesses continue to buy high-end workstations for knowledge workers is beyond me. Thin clients are the way to go for most knowledge workers. You just can’t beat the prices. Mobile users will always need laptops. Engineers engaged in design work, software development, and other CPU intensive work will need workstations. Mobile users and those engaged in CPU intensive work in most businesses make up a very small percentage of an overall user base. Besides the price, thin clients have a number of security advantages over workstations which may save company millions of dollars a year in prevention and response to a virus or attack. If I were in on a project deciding what technology to next deploy on desktops I’d be taking a serious look at think clients.”
