Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.
I thought it might be useful just passing on some info regarding this particular model of Thin Client because of the fact that here in Australia we are seeing something of a Resources Boom and anyone in the areas closest to Mining companies may find this style of Thin Client of real interest.
In the US these devices are used by Wal-Mart and fitted to the Fork Lifts, this way the driver can scan in the Pallet details through to the ERP system even while moving from Cold Storage to Truck Dock and back again. I believe there is even a story that one unit was still working even after being speared by another Fork Lifts forks...
These Units also have Wireless built-in as well as being sufficiently waterproof that they can withstand being in the rain or being hosed off.

The Neoware e900 is designed to work in varying environments, such as freezers, open warehouses, tractor trailers, dusty areas, and outdoor lots. Awarded a NEMA 4X/IP56 rating, indicating that it qualifies for use in extreme conditions, the Neoware e900 is designed to work effectively in both very cold and hot environments with an operating temperature range of -30° C to +50° C. The Neoware e900 is designed to sustain falls and be exposed to moisture without being damaged.
