Network computer and terminal manufacturer Wyse Technology Inc introduced two new thin client models at Comdex this week, and showed off the client system intended to support Microsoft Corp’s forthcoming Hydra multi-user NT software. The first of the thin clients, codenamed Scott, will support the Santa Cruz Operation Inc’s Tarantella application broker, which currently works with UnixWare and Sun Solaris. It enables existing applications to be displayed on a Java-based web top. Scott will ship in February, when the price will be set. The second thin client, Elite, claimed as a new product category by Wyse, is a low-cost HTML- enabled thin client that can be connected directly to an intranet, using the Helios operating system from Perihelion Software Ltd running on an ARM RISC chip. It can be implemented as a straight terminal emulation client, or with access to Windows and Java applications. It will ship in February, no prices yet. Wyse also showed off its first device supporting Microsoft Corp’s multi-user version of Windows NT, codenamed Hydra. The Winterm client will be upgradable to Microsoft’s T.share protocol, whenever it becomes available, but like similar devices from competing companies, currently uses the ICA protocol from Citrix Systems Inc.
