Windows terminal

Windows terminal

A windows terminal is a dumb terminal especially designed to run Windows applications. Windows terminals are connected to a Windows NT server through a network. The server handles all processing and data storage. The terminals do nothing more than send the user's input (keystrokes and mouse movements) to the server and the server does the processing and displays the results on the terminal's screen. Because Windows NT is not a true multi-user operating system like UNIX, it requires additional software to support Windows terminals.
