My adventure with the Raspberry Pi

I just finished a detailed write-up on getting FreeRDP compiled on the Raspberry Pi.  I came across a lot of sites with comments requesting how to do it, but no real in depth information on how to do it.  I spent a few days figuring it all out.  I even got a rudimentary GUI to prompt the user for a Username/Password combination.  The compiling steps can be found here and I’ll follow up with how I setup the desktop icon and prompt the user for credentials.  I hope this can be useful to the internet community at large.
