For those who think FAT was not enough
Software giant Microsoft announced the Windows Thin PC (WinTPC) thin client operating system will be available on July 1. A release candidate has been available since March. It added that WinTPC will be supported by Microsoft's Forefront Endpoint Protection.

WinTPC uses Windows 7 and replaces the Windows XP based Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PCs (WinFLP). Vole is hoping that people who reuse old desktops and laptops as thin clients to access remote desktops or cloud-based services will dump their old software.

WinTPC will runs security, management, terminal emulation, Remote Desktop, Citrix Receiver and Web browsers. The rest is done on a server.

The software could also be used by those who want to run any of the various lightweight cloud-oriented operating systems now on the market.
