NOT in the fat client business. As I indicated before, there
is really no market for that. What I am wondering is whether
a non-remote boot eComStation client created with components
os WSeB utilizing our WiseManager technology would help our
For instance, let say you have a notebook, instead of doing
CID install, what if I can attach the blank notebook to the
network, have an environment created exactly like the other
diskless stations, then, when everything is ready, execute
some kind of program much like the .... (what did we call it?
Docking? No....mmmm...the one that let you detach the
notebook and still be able to access files like it's connected
to the server still) ... and detach from the network.
When you check in to the hotel room, power it on, and it run
things just like you were connected to the network.
It's not exactly a fat-client - because that's really not the
kind of business we are in - but I think it's better.
Of course, eventually, we can have the NFS like Duane
