Windows Fundamentals

Microsoft Corp. released a new version of its operating system for businesses this week that extends the life of older PCs by effectively turning them into thin-client computers. Called "Windows Fundamentals" for Legacy PCs, the software is offered only to customers on Microsoft's Software Assurance licensing and maintenance program.
