Submission + - Thick to Thin? - A Good Idea?

notaspunkymonkey writes: I currently work in the IT department of a BPO organisation, and have been given the opportunity to investigate some pros and cons to switch from our current Windows Desktop and Laptop solution, to a new and exciting thin client solution.

We have nearly 5000 desktop computers which are due to be refreshed around the globe, and are looking to either save money from a deployment or administration perspective. This potentially goes hand in hand with our efforts to centralise our data in 2 main data centres.

What experiences do people have with any vendors, or switching to this kind of infrastructure? All potential vendors will have you believe that its simple and users love it, however in the real world this is often very different, any horror stories out there?
