Wyse S10 – an aging terminal

I’ve been dealing a lot Wyse S10 terminals, and have noted that not everything I would like is supported on the platform anymore.
After looking at a few issues with sessions, I had investigated updating the firmware to the lastest and greatest version (7.01 at the time of writing).
The readme contains a few key points though, that highlighted some of the limitations:
1) Net boot for S10 without flash
The size of the firmware has outgrown
the available storage on the S10 with
0 flash memory. This means that the
S10 will ALWAYS have its firmware
streamed and this requires access to
an FTP, HTTP or HTTPS server to boot.
Without the server, the S10 will not
2) Improved Real-time for lower bandwidth over the WAN
3) Improved Flash performance
4) RDP 7 Compatible client Multimedia re-direction support
5) Native Bi-directional Audio
6) Improved Audio quality
7) Advanced Monitor Support Support Monitors of different resolutions
8) Improved drawing speed
Of course, I could be a bit harsh as they are relatively inexpensive terminals and seem to do the job of running ICA ok (providing you aren’t trying to do HDX flash improvements) … cheap and cheerful as they say.
