    I've said this before and but I think the thing Microsoft should do go in with HP and/or Dell to make servers that have Windows on them that can be sent to terminals. I know there is Citrix that does this but I don't think a lot of companies using this service. I like this idea because (Say HP) makes 3 servers...lower end, mid-range and high-end and they make these servers to just stream Windows. This way every server companies buy that streams Windows has the same hardware so it makes it easier for Microsoft to test because they just have to make sure it works on 3 different hardware specs. Companies buy this, then buy cheap computers to stream the OS. Now you do have to worry about if your company uses a specific type of software or hardware but first every company can look at what works and if they off the bat have no issues they can buy the server(s) and get to work. If there is some software/hardware that they use that needs to be tested they can send it to Microsoft and let them test it and until its tested they can use whatever version of Windows they're using. Microsoft would have to make a specific division just for testing but it would be worth it to them. Once a company is running one of these servers it'll be easier to update and fewer issues.

    I hope I explained this good enough.
