I finally have management looking seriously at replacing some of our Deskpro 2000/4000's with thin clients. Mentality up until recently was to spend a few bucks more and get a full PC. Big thing I am wondering about is patching of the thin clients. IE, OS, etc. Some machines we have rebuilt as DOS clients, which allows us to avoid such client side patching. No Virus Scan, no M$ patches, etc. I see Linux thins, I see XP SP2 thins, I see CE thins....., Windows based clients have IE6, now, I would assume that things like XP, IE, even CE would still need patching. If so, does the use of the management software make this more feasible? Forgive my ignorance on this issue. Chad M.
