Not-so-OT point of philosophy

I started internal medicine rotation at the Loma Linda VA Hospital today
and noted that the entire place is crawling with WinTerms (by Wyse, no less),
running WinCE, connected via Citrix to a Win2K Advanced Server host. There
are only a few "real" PCs there -- in fact, I think the Macs might outnumber

Before all of you cry off-topic, doesn't it seem odd to anyone we're now
full circle and back to low-power terminals connected to a "mainframe," now
that corporate America has gotten off its fat client kick?

Compared to the WinTerms, my old Wyse terminal looks so nice.
