Is the Raspberry Pi ready to take over the low-end thin client market? This week, NComputing unveiled the RX-HDX, its second Raspberry Pi based thin client. In addition, ViewSonic announced a software upgrade for the Pi-based SC-T25 thin client that it announced last year.
The future of thin clients — low-cost, remotely managed virtual client computers — has always been a question mark.
Early last year, Citrix, VMware and Microsoft, jumpstarted the Pi thin client market by partnering with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Broadcom, ThinLinx, and others to bring its Citrix HDX remote display protocol to the Raspberry Pi.
Citrix announced a Raspberry Pi 3 based Citrix HDX Ready Pi mini-PC reference design.
