Mmm... low memory usage... might even be tablet-worthy once they start getting a bit more RAM.

Does the windows experience seem any smoother to you?
post #115 of 139
who cares no 64bit support and i bet search was disabled because the services added weight i assume this is for older and low end hardware.

Looks like this is to redeem MS for their licensing issues with virtual desktops and likely to make them more corporate cloud-friendly. From MS:
Quote:
Windows Thin PC (WinTPC) is a smaller footprint version of Windows 7 that allows customers to repurpose existing PCs as thin clients without requiring the VDA license to access VDI desktops. WinTPC replaces WinFLP.
So this is not meant to be a real desktop OS, but something to connect to a real desktop OS. Hence the fact that even the search function was removed. Real desktop OS = all the goodies that comes with even a basic version of Windows + apps.

I investigated further into the licensing of this, and it will require an SA (Software Assurance) license, which is limited to:
Quote:
In addition to commercial business, Microsoft offers Open programs for the following industries:

Government organizations

Health organizations

Educational institutions

Qualifying 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations

Multinational organizations
So to answer the question, "How much will it cost?" It will not be available for individual purchase.

Windows as a thin client? Interesting...

Wouldn't pay more than £30 for it though, it's difficult to find how much Windows 7 Starter costs (logically, it would replace this on netbooks and other low-power machines), but I'd expect a similar pricing. I think Home Basic is £60?

I find the naming odd. Typically a thin client is reliant on a central server. It appears that this is a standalone OS. Very interesting.

I wonder how well this will run on an older P4.

This is replacing WinFLP, which is the same thing, but XP-based and came out in 2006.

This is not likely going to be available to the public to purchase.
