Crap.
Users have the same permissions on a virtual desktop as they have on a
physical PC. It's all dependent on how the OS has been configured (user
permissions, group policies etc.) and has SFA to do with how the OS is
accessed.

So the user can just slip in a CD or a DVD and load a new application of
their choosing at will?

Only an extremely poorly managed corporate environment would have
regular users with permissions to install 'new applications of their
choosing', regardless of the use of thin/fat clients.

Not a good time to be working for Jetstar in general. The article
suggests that Jetstar expect you to own your own laptop. No doubt,
Jetstar will "help" you buy one. If you have had a suitable private
school education you will understand that they expect you to have your
own computer and that they are entitled to earn a commission when you
buy it
