RDP 7 support, HP T5735 thin clients
I currently have a bunch of HP T5735 thin clients around the school, which all have their linux based OS on. However, the problem I have is that rdesktop only supports RDP5 and not the new RDP7 stuff with FX (ie. improved graphic support etc...).
Now, these machines run Sempron processors and have 1GB RAM. Would it be feasible for me to grab a bunch of Windows licenses (Vista Home Basic or something like that), and install this on them, and then use the proper RDP7 client?
Reason being is that at some point in the next couple of years, I want to migrate our current 2003 terminal server farm to a 2008 r2 farm, moving from loads of 32bit virtual machines to just a couple of high specced, purpose purchased 64bit machines.
