We had a successful pilot with a Precedence Technologies thin client solution last year.
Since then we have significantly increased it's use in the school.
We are traditionally an RM school running a fat client CC3 environment. A big advantage of using Precedence Technologies is the ability to integrate their thin client solution into the existing CC3 domain. This means we only have one set of user accounts to manage (from either RM management console or netmanager) and retain the users existing drive shares and home directories.
We have also found their technical support to be excellent.
Hope this helps.

This thread is not pointless - it is someone asking for advice and experiences. Your post on the other hand, was pointless.

Thanks to everyone for their responses.
We're not planning at this stage to use TC devices - we'll make our thicks into thins. Both Dataspire and Precedence have solutions for that. However, in at least two of our ICT Suites there is a requirement for Windows Movie Maker. Both companies confirm it won't run Thin.
Dataspire solution is a hybrid which we've seen and used and is very neat: one desktop with elements of local apps and thin apps on the same desktop (no citrix 'window' for the thin apps required).
So far Precedence solution is either 1. find an alternative to WMM or 2. Have a citrix window for thin apps. Neither are favoured solutions.
Anyone have any thoughts on this challenge? Has anyone gone down the road of thin only and then found their ICT development (curriculum) restricted?

You had a look at 2x thinclientserver?
That what I've used to convert old pcs to thin clients..worked really well here.
Maybe thats not what you need - got to be honest I got bored reading the sales pitch! ^^^

I'm currently looking for a thin client solution and already have experience with Precedence Technologies. I certainly echo what unclesam0 has to say about their support - most requests we put them are achievable and their response is usually within hours.
@unclesam0 - I'd certainly be interested in seeing your thin client setup sometime in the near future; perhaps we could arrange a visit to yours?

Dataspire do offer a great solution which was way ahead of everything else about 2 years ago..but they are very expenisve and be carefull of their hidden charges especially in there ongoing support costs.
RM\Ctrix Xenapp is coming out soon which could make the dataspire solution redundent as I rekon it will be better and most important of all be cheaper...
