Windows terminal

A dumb terminal especially designed to run Windows applications. Windows terminals are connected to a Windows NT server through a network. All processing and data storage is handled by the server; the terminal does nothing more than send the user's input (keystrokes and mouse movements) to the server and display the results on the display screen. Because Windows NT is not a true multi-user operating system like UNIX, it requires additional software to support Windows terminals. The most popular software for this is called WinFrame.
