  • Thin clients to run NT Embedded 4.0

    Microsoft last week announced that the Windows NT Embedded 4.0 operating system will run on Windows terminals. But users and analysts aren't sure how valuable or successful the more powerful and more costly thin-client operating system will be. Microsoft said the NT thin clients are coming from several vendors early next year and will provide higher performance than thin clients running Windows CE. The Windows-based Terminal Professional, a thin client running NT Embedded 4.0, will support the Internet Explorer 5.0 browser and streaming media, Microsoft said.
