Storys: Free Wyse Monkeys has a new look, and a new web master!

Thin Press

In 2005 I started this site with the idea of sharing some of the tips and tricks I was discovering working as a system engineer for Wyse. I have always had, and still have, a passion for sever based computing. Not only does it make business sense but is also my way of contributing to make IT greener. Freewysemonkeys was an attempt to help everyone enjoy the simplicity of Thin Clients by making the set up a bit easier based on my experiences. (and a great excuse to spend hours in my lab building crazy little tools and packages for the site  )

Storys: V-Class L - Join the dual screen revolution

Thin Press
Executive Brief
Wyse have introduced new line of thin clients to replace the ageing 1125, 3150, 5150 and 9150 line. This new hardware is cased in the "V" style chassis however it represents a very new platform with a number of new software and hardware enhancements. Not the least of these is the ability to display duel video. In this article we look and the new line and the ins and outs of Dual Video on different operating systems and how this relates to the RDP and ICA client. As we find out there is a bit to learn to get the most out of these units.

For those who have always found thin clients lacking in the ability to display quality video and multi-media it also marks the start of a new strategie by vendors to provide solutions.

Do you think the acquisition of Wyse by Dell is good?

Finally Dell has great Thin Clients
Dell will probably kill the Wyse brand
The best that could happen to Wyse
