I'm doing a feasibility study on migrating 30 of our in-house researchers from desktop towers to thin-clients. The problem (among others) that I'm facing is that our researchers have grown used to dual-monitors. Can anyone suggest a good thin-client which would allow for dual-monitors? Other qualities that are of interest to me are fan-less, low-cost, and disk-less/flash memory. Companies with resellers located in Canada is a plus. Duty is a pain in the arse.
Also there's the question of OS. Our network is composed primarily of Windows (2003, 2000, XP) and the users would be using RDP to connect to a terminal server. Should I go with an embedded version of Windows? Stripped down XP? I'm not opposed to Linux and would willingly go that route if there was a good locked down flavor with RDP support which could be easily integrated into a AD environment.
Thanks in advance for your answers! I'll post further information here if I've forgotten some details.
