Product Review: ClearCube arms desktop-client revolution

Control is at the center of a never-ending tug of war between users and desktop administrators. Users instinctively want total control of their desktops, believing only they are qualified to configure their most productive work environment. IT administrators long for the days of thin client, mainframe-style computing when they had total control over everyone's desktop, because only they know how to run a safe, productive working environment.
ClearCube Inc.'s PC Blade solution and its accompanying management software aim to please both users and IT administrators. While maintaining the user's usual desktop environment, ClearCube gives administrators far more manageability, security, and flexibility than do straight desktop computing or traditional thin-client computing.
