Microsoft Announces Release Date for New Thin Client OS

We’ve been sharing updates on Windows Thin PC (WinTPC) for some time now and are excited to announce that today WinTPC reached its RTM milestone and will become generally available for download on July 1, 2011. As we’ve been talking about, customers told us that they want an easy way to repurpose their existing PCs as thin clients.

WinTPC makes this a reality and plays a part in our broader desktop virtualization strategy , which is to deliver the flexibility to work from everywhere, improve compliance and business continuity, and simplify management so that IT professionals can deliver better service to employees.

With the above goal in mind we created WinTPC to help customers repurpose their PCs as thin clients, thereby driving down the cost of VDI. We used additional feedback gathered from customers in our Community Technology Preview (CTP) to add a few features in the RTM.
