Microsoft Windows ThinPC - anyone?
Has anyone lese taken a look at Micorosft Windows ThinPC yet?
From the website at Windows Thin PC by Microsoft | Windows Enterprise ...
Personally, I think it looks just like a basic install of Windows 7. The 'small footprint' is over 3GB of hard disk space before trying to strip anything out. Unless they are talking about memory footprint... my VM has 512MB of RAM and it is running fine but I can't say I've tried to run Windows 7 with 512MB RAM. I guess without running any apps it would work.
Windows Thin PC enables customers to repurpose existing PCs as thin clients by providing a smaller footprint, locked down version of Windows 7.
I was hoping for a convenient method of locking down the system... it looks like you're left to do that via GPO though.
At the present time, Windows Fundamentals with RDC 7.0 seems to offer more than enough functionality in a much smaller footprint.
