Editorial A c|net editorial posits that Google may be well on its way to developing a complete suite of internet-based services that could act as a computing environment for any thin client that's capable of accessing it. And Microsoft may be planning a similar move.

And the pendulum swings back

I remember using thin clients for general computing years back, then everyone got their own complete desktop, now thin clients are being talked about again.

Seems to tie in with development of microprocessors.
Huge leaps and bounds in microproccesors brought us away from thin clients, microprocessor development seems to have levelled off, so thin clients are being discussed again.

One advantage of thin clients I can readily point out is that individual service calls for virus and spyware problems will probably drop to nil when a true Bofh is running the show.
