Choice for a thin client?

Post by cristaljohnson »

Considering that RaspberryPi 0 W is a budget-friendly computer priced at $10, would it be a more appropriate choice for a thin client? Have you considered utilizing this option?

1. Too slow. Very slow. Raspberry Pi 2 is much faster than Zero.
2. No ethernet. Wi-Fi is bad. Onboard Wi-Fi without antenna is twice as bad. Millisecond delays are invisible in web browsing over Wi-Fi and will make you crazy when working interactively with RDP.

Old x86 computers, too slow for Windows, will be cheaper and more powerful than Raspberry Zero with WTware.
