Our company purchased nearly two hundred thin clients predominantly HP T5135 thin clients running ThinConnect in 2008?.
For nearly a year users have encountered speed issues with the thin clients T5135. I recently joined and suspect that the problem was because Office 2010 installed on the network.
I identified that that the T5135 has a 400MHZ VIA processor, and 128 MB RAM when Office 2010 requires a 500 MHZ CPU and 256MB RAM. I found by research that the T5135 runs apps locally not on the server.
Because we are a charity 200 thin clients represents a lot of money for us.
We also have a large number of netbooks, laptops and desktops which run citrix that do not have this problem.
Is there a way of retro fitting the thin clients?
What I was thinking was maybe installing a low spec linux os and a low spec browser e.g. chrome and installing the citrix plugin?
Anythoughts on an os running happily on a 400MHZ CPU, 128MB of RAM and only a small flash drive, running a citrix capable browser.
Because there would be a lot of work involved in getting this going I would welcome any technical assistance from the community
All opinions welcome!
