Looking for a viable thin client solution where cost is a major issue. We are running server 2012 Hyper-V with 4 VMs and another 2012 physical server to add redundancy to our virtual environment. Have about 10 fat clients in which there only function is using a WEB browser, have an additional 6 that use MS Office and a print control app to capture print charges.
Was thinking of Linux over MS for the cost advantage. There is a Linux Terminal Server project, but have not spent time to research. Looks like Citrix XenServer is free, does that include XenDesktop which looks like a thin client application?
Securing the browser is another concern only want a few site to be accessible. Currently controlling with Group Policies.
Any other suggestions and additional information about products would be helpful.
Thought once the fat clients start to die off would replace with thin like "ncomputing" or "Wyse" terminals.
