Another Network Computer

Friday, July 14, 2006

Network computers are once again a hot technology. With broadband available cheaply and talks of Internet based OS's doing the rounds, they have seen a rebirth. There are several startups in the fray, NComupting being prominent amongst them. And now Microsoft is joining in the fray. They have released a network computer version of Windows XP to be used on old antiquated hardware.

The focus is more on preserving old customers who do not want to upgrade to newer versions of Window's. But still its a Network Computer. A unique approach to network computing I would say. It might stop a lot of people to just switch to Linux for old PC's while still retaining the benefits of Windows. Would work for small businesses.
