At the risk of sounding old (thank goodness for spell check and copy editors or you'd see how senile I am), I cut my teeth at ComputerWorld when the coolest thing a microcomputer could do was emulate a 5250 (if you know what that is you probably went to Woodstock to see the music or make fun of hippies!).
Wyse was an upstart making terminals back then. They were cool. You see, you had this display, keyboard and this long wire that attached to a mainframe. And, by gosh, you could do some real, honest computing with one of these things.
These days it's even cooler. You have this display, keyboard and this long wire that's attached to the data center or the cloud. And, by gosh, you can do some real, honest computing with one of these things. And by that I mean run a true-to-life virtual desktop where all your apps appear as if they were right there.
Like Harley-Davidson, Wyse has taken the best of the '70s and '80s and adapted it to the year 2012. Wyse's thin clients offer cheap computing, easy-to-manage computing, green computing and secure computing.
Don't just take my word for it. Just ask Dell, which just agreed to buy the 32-year-old Wyse to improve Dell's thin client play.
Am I brainwashed by too many lunches with the CEO of Wyse, or did it really adapt to the 21st century? You tell me at [email protected]
