I think there is a key diffference. Windows thin clients were never a great value because MS charged the same for a Windows client license as for a Terminal Server user license, and some apps didn’t work right under Terminal Server anyway. So ClearCube found a way to maintain the benefits of the one PC, one Windows, one user model and the benefits of the thin client model at the same time.

Oh yeah, Blue Lable — nice one. I wish I could say I’ve done more than gaze longingly at the bottle locked in a case in the liquor store.

The same thing Apple did wrong with the Newton — not have patience.
