Just because you haven't heard a peep from thin clients in what seems like ages (the SafeBook notwithstanding), that doesn't mean that the business has keeled over, and apparently, HP believes there's still profits to be found. In a recently announced deal, HP has agreed to buy thin client computing company Neoware in a $334 million deal, and is reportedly hoping that the purchase will "increase the growth of its thin client computing business and augment its Linux software, client virtualization, and customization abilities." HP is supposedly looking to put Neoware in its business desktop unit, and while no further details were mentioned in regard to actual product releases, we should be hearing a lot more about all of this when the deal officially closes in Q4.
