"Testing" Raspberry Pi 2 ThinClient with FreeRDP

Yup! I like to make test like that :)
Sorry for the video quality, my phone is quite old and recording a projector is a pain. I didnt include audio in the video but audio redirection is working very well!


Projector res is 1920x1080, Smite in windowed mode at 1280x720.

Raspberry Pi 2 first look

Just receved my Raspberry Pi 2 board :)


On the left the old Model B 1, on the right the Model B+ 1 and in the middle the new Model B 2.
Model B+ 1 and B 2 have the same form factor... So you can use you old B+ case for the new B2.

I played a little bit with a custom Ubuntu Vivid distro and the first impression is that the new B2 board is quite fast but suffer, compared to other board (like ODROID C1), on the IO speed

Also overclocking to 1000Mhz seem to be stable

Raspberry Pi 2 Model B OUT!


Soooo, after 3 years, the Raspberry Pi team release a new board!

Whats new on the RPi 2 board:
  • A 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU (~6x performance)
  • 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM (2x memory)
  • Complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 1
Because it has an ARMv7 processor, it can run the full range of ARM GNU/Linux distributions, including Snappy Ubuntu Core, as well as Microsoft Windows 10. The Raspberry Pi 2-compatible version of Windows 10 will be available free of charge to makers.

RPi-ThinClient on Ubuntu and Windows 10?? Why not ;)

First RPi-TC release will be available soon as i'll receive the new board :)

Little HOWTO:

Git repo updated:

Please note:
Service like cups, openvpn, libvirtd, pcscd and libvirt-guests arent enable by default. Use bum interface to enable it, if you need it!
This will be the last RPi-TC Soft Float release. Next releases will be Hard Float (based on Raspbian repository with rpi-update by Hexxeh). That means we will drop VMWare client, for a best package support, Citrix accelerated client and general better performance due to HF packages.
