Wyse Converter For PCs Now Available

This week Dell has released the Wyse Converter For PCs.
WC4PCs is a chargeable tool that can be installed on a Windows 7 or Windows 10 PC to literally convert it into a Thin Client.
This enables organizations to repurpose Windows 7 or Windows 10 PCs into fully optimized thin client-like devices with ease and simplicity. This vendor agnostic software runs on any Dell or non-Dell hardware.
A current limitation is that it only runs on english Windows OS. Non-english support will follow later this year.
