but how thin?
Thing must run Win32 apps, x86 ones. At least one edition should do, absolutely. I can't force a 5M client database owner to code a "stylish" silverlight/net/whatever client as they haven't touched their app since 2004. Why should they? It is java application dating back to 1.4 days and no matter trolls say, it still works fine, even better each java update.
