When I speak to VDI suppliers they tell me how much easier it would be to manage my PC estate if I used their product but they base this "fact" on the assumption that we don't already manage fat clients with imaging, ZENworks, AD etc. They assume that each PC we support has its OS and apps hand built each time.

There is a place for thin client but at the moment it is only an additional tool to deliver another type of desktop and not a full replacement.
