OS News: Thin Clients – The Ndiyo

August 15th, 2007 No comments

I’m formatting and putting the finishing touches on a tech article before sending it off to OS News. I’d been away from it for a while, but I hope to get back into monthly article writing. I’ve got lots of other ideas in the pipeline.

Rather than the usual lumbering, five or six thousand word essay I’ve kept the length down to around 2,000 words. Click here to read it.

The first half of the article explores some of the issues surrounding thin clients in general and then, for the second half, I focus on a specific thin client solution called the Ndiyo . My interest in the Nivo was sparked when I met one of the developers in a RISC OS IRC channel while thin clients and third world IT issues have been issues that have interested me for a while.
