| The solution, according to Sirius Corporation, is a move away from the
| ECTA frameworks to leaner hardware and 'virtualised' network services.
| Traditional 'fat-client' workstations should be replaced by low-power
| 'thin-client' terminals. With flat screens and server consolidation
| power consumption could be reduced even further.
| [...]
| Hardware requirements to run Windows Vista means these consumption
| figures will rise even futher. Schools are using computers as room
| heaters which then need to be cooled using expensive air conditioning
| and Modern thin-client networks could reverse this trend and are
| available from the Open Source community and vendors of proprietary
| software today.
