Step 1: What Is Thin Client OS?

To work with Terminal Server, common practice is to install Windows on users' computers and run Remote Desktop Connection. We recommend to remove users hard disks and boot WTware by network instead of Windows installation. The result in both cases — Windows Terminal Server desktop on users screen.

Sound, FAT32/exFAT/NTFS disks, printers, scanners, USB-COM ports redirection work now.

WTware for Raspberry Pi 2 performance is sufficient for performing office tasks.

Step 2: It Takes Just Four Steps...

It takes just four steps to start working with Windows desktop on Pi 2 (Pi 3):
1. Download and install WTware for Raspberry Pi on server.

2. Run on server WTware graphic configurator, press button "Create SD card" and create SD card for local or network boot using WTware wizard:

3. Insert card into Raspberry Pi 2 (Pi 3).
4. If you don't use WTware DHCP service and want to boot by network, specify in DHCP 067 parameter: 5.4.14\kernel7.img Turn Raspberry Pi 2 (Pi 3) on. You can see Windows Desktop now and work with Windows Applications!

    Now it works with newly released Pi 3. Almost all features work - WiFi we'll support very soon.

    Well, you can try to be slothy system administrator with my project for x86 thin clients instead of Pi. It works without limitations with no license so people could try it :)
