ThinStation

I came up with a pretty nice low cost thin client solution for the First United Methodist Church in Iowa City. It is based on ThinStation, an open source solution. Those are diskless, fanless (pretty much) computers booting from TFTP and running terminal sessions on a Windows 2003 server. We have deployed one CompactFlash HD based system at SUI, and are in the process of deploying 5 more for testing different types of setups, probably including the TFTP boot option. Those should replace the WYSE terminals they’ve been using. It will be cheaper, faster, and more flexible.
