What is a Lenovo Thin Client Device?
A Lenovo Thin Client system is a Lenovo machine that runs a version of Microsoft Windows called Windows 7 Embedded or Embedded Linux. These systems are Lenovo machines but are marketed by Lenovo, VXL and Devon IT. They also have a different hardware configuration than regular machines. These are also known as “Thin Clients” and the systems run a version of Microsoft Windows known as Windows Embedded 7, a scaled down version of full Windows 7 or Embedded Linux based on SUSE. It is built specifically for the hardware it runs on and is small in size compared to the normal Microsoft Windows 7 or Linux that Lenovo may preload. Microsoft Windows 7 Embedded can be installed using a systems management tool such as Microsoft’s SCCM product, VXL Manage or Devon its Lenovo Thin Manager (LTM) product, depending on the Thin Client vendor. The image is typically installed on small storage medium in the machine and is a “locked down” version of Windows or Linux and is a “read only” operating system environment.
