Microsoft to release Windows thin PC in late June

Final test build lands

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Microsoft has pushed out a final test build of its Windows Thin PC (WinTPC).

The company dished out the Release Candidate yesterday, but the final version of WinTPC won't arrive until 30 June, said Microsoft.

"Customers like the reduced footprint of WinTPC – the machines they will likely use it on often have less disk space than brand new machines and WinTPC helps to ensure they will have adequate space," wrote the vendor's Karri Alexion-Tiernan in a blog post.

"They also like the write filters which are helping customers to secure the device running WinTPC by preventing them from saving data or installing applications locally and they're also pleased they can leverage their existing System Center products for management and deployment."

The final code of the product, which is built on top of Embedded Standard edition of Windows 7 Service Pack 1, will only be made available to customers who pay up for Software Assurance licences. ®
