Winterm

A early family of thin clients (terminals) from Wyse Technology, San Jose, CA (www.wyse.com) that displayed Windows, Java, Linux, Unix and Web-based applications running on servers in an enterprise or the Internet. It uses a variety of thin display protocols, including HTML, X Window, text terminal emulations (ASCII, ANSI, IBM), Microsoft Terminal Services and ICA. Winterm thin clients use embedded operating systems such as Windows XP Embedded, Windows CE, Linux and Wyse's own Blazer OS. See thin client and ICA.
