Windows After the end of business on Monday I received the following in an email from Microsoft: "We appreciate your feedback and enthusiasm throughout the Windows Thin PC Community Technology Preview. Today, we are happy to announce that Windows Thin PC has been released to manufacturing (RTM), and will be available for our SA customers to download starting July 1, 2011." Anandtech published a brief but concise review of Windows Thin PC but here's a quick summary of my experience of this 32-bit only OS based on Windows Embedded Standard 7.

Sure it won't cost anything, other than support, costs of retraining, rebuilding your entire user management structure, and the cost of all those 1Ghz machines, unless you are repurposing older 1Ghz machines, which by this time, are 10-12 years old, and so increased hardware costs.

Free is not always free.


You really mean the exact same type of support you would have to do with a Windows eviro right? Or do Windows Sys Admins just sit on their collective asses and do nothing. I know your a Windows fanboy Jake, but come on, if you are going to criticize something at least put something on the plate. Sheesh.
