Who will rid me of these obsolete PCs?

You're likely to regret buying Wyse clients

All very nice but what I would like over any of these "pretty" GUI enhancements is the ability to move to SD. Maps remains a storage hog. Very poor, Froyo has been out long enough now. There's.no excuse to keep ignoring this potentially minor yet valuable tweak.

Wouldn't be problem if Microsoft weren't so greedy

And considering how full of bugs their new products generally seem to be, how the hell are they worth over £100?
