    If you were kitting out a room right now...

    ...what would you be getting?

    - standard desktops (one user one box)
    - VDI (full fat windows but running on a server cluster)
    - pure terminal services (mutli users on one server)

    Would be an interesting poll but I can only see a new thread button

    VDI is the best of both worlds! If you can afford it!

    Unless this was for somewhere that would be heavily in to video-editing or similar, I'd put in 11 NComputing-based "thin client" workstations, maybe supplemented with some netbooks if we had the wireless infrastructure.

    Currently we have no thin client, so it's all fat at the moment, but I'd like to move towards VDI for Technology / Art / CompSci.

    It depends upon costs, and what the room was to be used for.

    I want to move towards thin client for some rooms, as I hope it's a way to push out more machines across the site.
