The day before last I had to configure a VMware View proof of concept. For this we used HP hardware and a coBSODuple of thin clients from Wyse.

People always tell me that thin clients don’t need support, no management needed, nothing can go wrong. Well.. Don’t let me touch those things then. If I touch them they go boom.

The clients were preconfigured and autologon was enabled. Since we both didn’t know how to get out of the loop (or saw the logout option 😳 ) we thought: Well, let’s keep the shift button pressed during boot. On old clients this sometimes worked. The result is visible in the picture.. Scary.
