“Back in November, we officially announced a new Windows product called Windows MultiPoint Server 2010. Today we are launching Windows MultiPoint Server around the world. Windows MultiPoint Server is available for purchase through OEMs and Microsoft Academic Volume Licensing customers on March 1, for schools and educational institutions (mainly for use in classrooms, labs and libraries).”
Windows MultiPoint Server 2010 Launched

After 25 years we finally made it back to terminals.
So Microsoft launches this about 15 years after the thin client fiasco. The only vendor that pulled it off (in schools, mainly), and without much success, was Sun. (By the way, the thin client concept in this sense, came from Larry Ellison…)
Everybody else is talking about “the cloud”, so I guess MS will launch their distributed computing model around 2025.
