Can someone please recommend a lean distro for low speced PCs that includes RDP module to RDP to a Windows Server 2012 Server?


Any advice welcome.

There is a lot of flavors out there Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, Kali. Some of them may already have it built in. Anyone of them that don't have it can get it by using the apt-get repository. Just type... sudo apt-get install rdesktop
