In SR related news but not specific to the Gobi7 90 day trial, someone dropped me a note the other day and had me utswitch over to a different box that was on the Sun corporate network... what did I see before my eyes but a login prompt for a couple of windows sessions running under win4solaris (I am guessing). I was able to login to an XP instance and poke around for a bit, after that I headed back into my $SHELL and cleansed myself. The technology totally rocks.
I mentioned to Craig that I am just geeked on thin clients and their use. I drew out a scenario for him that just excited me to think about. Say there is an area hospital that is planning an EMR roll out and now they are going to have to place either laptops in all the docs hands or lots more terminals (currently fat clients) around the place. Now what if they could hand out smart cards, install sun rays all around the hospital, in the rooms in the docs offices... you get the point and let the doc, nurses... move their session from place to place. No fat client nodes to backup all over the campus, no laptops with data walking all over the state, less power being consumed, lower total cost of ownership and increased security. Makes my heart skip a beat. Now if I could just find some folks in Southfield to talk to.
For what it's worth.
