Hi Carsten,

as a side note, you might perhaps want to have a look at „thinRoot“ (https://github.com/jens-maus/thinRoot). This is a thin client operating system I maintain, which comes with an embedded ThinLinc client and which I recently also ported over to the RaspberryPi platform including the RaspberryPi3 and RaspberryPi4 after having it only available for the intelNUC series of hardware. However, the 64bit version of the ThinLinc client for the RaspberryPi/ARM is still missing as Cendio has unfortunately not yet released an aarch64 binary version of their client software, but perhaps thinRoot might already be interesting for you given you are interested in ultra thin client environments, which you can also boot completely into RAM via PXE/TFTP and thus might have a better maintainability over long term. And thinRoot should easily quite adaptable to your own environment/needs like we did for the use case in our scientific environment.

Best Regards,
