MultiPoint 2011 Getting Close

I have to admit I had no idea what MultiPoint server was. Apparently it is like Terminal Services (which I'm sure has been renamed but I'm not going to look up the new name) in that a single computer drives multiple dumb terminals, which we now call thin clients. MultiPoint Server 2011, now a release candidate (late beta in my book), can drive a couple dozen thin clients.

Unlike Terminal Services (or whatever it's called these days) which is aimed at general purpose IT, MultiPoint is aimed at smaller, more controlled environments such as schools and libraries.

Do you like MultiPoint or know what Terminal Services is now called? Answers to each equally welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
