If you are a MultiPoint fan, and according to my mail, many of you are, the next release is due this March. For those who have not had the pleasure, MultiPoint is a virtualization tool that support thin clients. But instead of thin clients/dumb terminals driven by a Windows Server, MultiPoint lets you have up to 15 dumb terminals powered by a single PC. By dumb I mean dumb -- we are talking just a keyboard, mouse and monitor hooked to the PC through a video or USB port.
While this sounds cool, and many of you dig the MultiPoint scene, IBM proposed the exact same idea for OS/2 in the late 80s.
The new MultiPoint Server 2011 supports either pure dumb terminals or more modern thin client devices. Even legacy PCs can be used as terminals, allowing older machines to run more modern software.
