OpenSuse factory on ThinClient

Dear Suse people,

We are currently considering replacing some of our Ubuntu installation’s on some ThinClients. As of now, they have a fullblown installation of Ubuntu including Unity (yikes).

What would be really cool is to have a rolling release distro. So, only updates and no upgrades.

I was wondering if OpenSuse Factory can be used for this purpose.

We basically need a distribution with RDP support (rdesktop). But it should also provide a rather solid XFCE desktop for some other small laptops.

I considered Arch (unstable), Ubuntu (not rolling), CentOs (outdated / slow), Gentoo (lol), Knoppix (no updates), SysrescueCD (had issue’s).

IMNSHO, Factory is (now) a rolling distro, but it is also the Beta
testing platform of openSUSE. Things do break, often. This may change,
dunno. The model switch is very recent.

However, do notice that /all/ questions regarding factory should go the
the Factory forum, which here is named “Prerelease-Beta forum”. I
believe you should ask a moderator to move your post there. Use the
triangle button below.
