Windows XP.... with code name Eiger. a version go Windows Xp that can run
with less hardware configuration that normal Windows Xp...

when I can get a version of Windows Eiger....? Where?

What's so funny that you should fall to the floor Kurt?

OK so it might be a couple of years before MS get this to market, but
there is a fair degree of inertia in large academic institutions so if
they want to go via thin client (and it might not be a bad move for
them) planning ahead might be a good move.

MS already has a thin client product for business; MS Terminal Server,
and there is competition, Citrix. Both are in massive use in large
corporations. There is a comparable Linux thin client (diskless, ROM
bootable) configuration that I've seen in use.

MS has a brain-dead "lite" version of XP/home that is marketed in
parts of the world. The OP may be seeing references to than.

If you hadn't noticed, I snipped all the Thin Client stuff of his from
my reply to his post. I could care less about it, or MS's involvement
in it.

I note from the link Carey posted that:
"The operating systems are being designed to run on low-end PCs that
could be used for simple tasks such as data entry and as a way to access
server-based applications"

You can't, as far as I know, connect to Terminal server from a machine
not running one of their 'modern' operating systems direct from boot -
as you can with Citrix Metaframe. Sounds like they're going for that
niche in the market. Given that education often gets gifted with defunct
ex-coporate machines which won't run XP at all, and 2k slowly, it might
be a promising product for our market. I'd be interested in keeping and
eye on this.

Oh, I see, sorry don't find it funny. But we've agreed we have different
senses of humour.

ROFL = rolling on floor laughing; can't roll on floor without falling
over first!

Really? I wouldn't have guessed that! And I don't believe anyone asked
you if you did!

Yep. You have the sense of humor of a Neo-Nazi, and I have the sense of
humor of someone that believes in the First Amendment!

Maybe I was already on the floor? Maybe I sank down to me knees, and
then laid down, before rolling?
