I would think a respin of TinyCore with RDESKTOP would serve, depending upon HOW low the ram.

Perhaps information about the processor and ram (real numbers here) would help us to provide more targeted suggestions. You have really not provided enough information to give meaning to your question.

If your thin clients are x86 based then this might be an option.

Might see if 2X.com still offers choices. They were bought out and not sure how open they are now.
