Raspberry Pi Thin Client Project

Finding a good and affordable Thin Client for your home lab is now history. The awesome Raspberry Pi Thin Client Project gives you a ready-to-go image with Microsoft RDC, Citrix Receiver 13.1 and VMware View 3.2 to name just a few.

For Raspberry Pi run the following command from terminal:

For MAC run the following command from terminal:
