Yesterday I witnessed a resurrection. An old RM like this:
Rose from the ashes and flew onto the web like a Phoenix.
I saw it boot up and be ready to access the web in 20 seconds.
This means that all the slow, old machines that you have might be viable as web browsers.
I have been visiting some schools to do some strategic planning with them and we concluded that a school’s computing fleet should now be considered in two parts:
1) a communication fleet (tablets, pcs and hand held devices) only running a sensible web browser such as Chrome or Firefox.
2) a computing fleet, capable of running programmes demanding large graphics processing power.
