I always didn’t liked the idea. Of using thin clients. But now after using it for a while on a project I started to like them. 1st of all it’s saves lot of power and very quite and no need to worry about users putting any cds floppies etc. Every thing is from server. so installing and managing software easy as well. Windows 2003 terminal server is rock solid. Cost while it will cost more money to setup but long run it will save you money as very low maintenance saves lot of electricity and best of all users will have the same experience.
