Maybe you're confusing it with Ubuntu having dropped i386 architecture?

Would be cool if the Pyra can also make some Remote Desctop Stuff or Video Conference.., but i would assume this might be in the Debian Repo

Something to play Apple Music, i can reach the Browser Itunes, but i cant playback the Audio Stream.., and at least watching the Streaming Movie Services..,
Something where i can put my Irig Adapter in, and use the Pyra as a Guitar Amp, just like Garage Band on IOS Devices..
A Synthesicer where i can use the Pyra Keyboard,

Remmina is the Remote Desktop client that I use for day to day work.
It should be in the repos.

Remmina supports RDP. In my experience as long as you're running a server copy of windows on your PC that'll probabably work across the local network. I don't have any expeience in debugging that if it doesn't work though. If you can't get that to work, it also support VNC and other stuff, and you could always install VNC server on the PC, but in my experience RDP is a much preferable environment to work in than old VNC.

Edit: Pushing games over RDP might not be ideal. But it is about ten years since i last used this in anger, so perhaps I'm just out of date.

Yeah, as said, RDP supports hardware acceleration, but only on Terminalserver and at least Win 10 Pro.
@matzesu your IT does not need to install Remmina on your PC. You need to install Remmina on the Pyra and activate Remote Desktop on your work PC.

this how you do a remote session:

ssh -x <pyra>
Oh, come on, at least explain that it's console only, and it will be absolutely not useful to what @matzesu wants to obtain.

@matzesu : Remmina is just a client and can connect to remote servers of different types, the most common for Windows is definitely Remote Desktop (RDP), but it could also connect to a VNC server, like UltraVNC, and some of those don't even require installation, can be used as portable apps.

i'm sorry powergod but you are misinformed
this is x11 tuneling over ssh
it allows you to forward some or all of your display to arbitrary computers
you can run any remote application alone - "seamless" is the marketing term
you can run complete remote window managers - aka "desktops"
you can mix & match so you can run any number of programs from any number of foreign computers (great for monitoring)
you can also play cool jokes like forwarding your (least) favorite pornography to some one elses screen (if their security sux)
this has all been possible on *nix since the 80's
and it's so easy...
which is why i mentioned it

I thought X' extensions to keep up with the times don't support that feature well, so that it'd be a hassle now to transparent-network. ? Or at least that or something I understood that way I've been told.

My my experince ssh -y <server> works more reliably than ssh -x <server> but to be fair I don't know why, and since I switched to arch on both my server and my local machine neither works, so I rely on the command line only (mediated by tux).

As far as I know "-x" disables x-11 forwarding... maybe you intended "-X" ?
I use "-Y" anyway for my local network, gives less troubles.

@matzesu needed a connection to a Windows PC, so using X-11 is not a straightforward method... you'll need to enable ssh there (if it's a Win10), or at least install Cygwin or similar software that must be configured well... while with RDP or VNC you just need to know the IP.

EDIT:
For reference, I found an old thread where I started to use X-11 forwarding with the Pandora.

ssh -X or ssh -Y is probably not what matzy is looking for. He will be happier using vnc server/client mechanism like tigervnc or remmina.

For playing itunes, you may try tunesviewer or shairport-sync. I thing rhythymbox has plugins for ipod support ( i don't know if it is same as playing itunes music, I am apple noob). All are in debian repos, you may read more info using "apt info <name>", it will give link to official website for more details.

yeah sorry for sounding like a pompous dick :)
when i was in school there was one guy who was so gung-ho about linux & perl (& lisp)
he was fat and bald - a real unix guy (i thought) - i actually looked up to him
anyway i am always going to promote the unix way of doing things. it's just too deeply ingrained
and superior.
also free software - i am basically passive aggressive about - as you all can tell
i remember when i frist ran a remote xclock session... i almost shit myself.
almost as much as i shit myself when i first saw super mario brothers
"now you're playing with power"
ssh -X (powergod is right!)
i would also recommend running xscreensaver in the background as your wallpaper basically.
x11 hacks. i love em.

Being from the times where computers said "Ok?" with a blinking cursur behind it kind of makes me kind of a *nix guy but mostly probably a dos guy, MSX-DOS or just MSX. I do relate to the playing with power feeling. In the MSX days we had this box that could do amazing things if you told it the right stuff.... Been looking for the right stuff ever since. I guess modern computer users expect a lot more, students I teach often ask isn't there a button/command for that, my answer is mostly "probably" but wouldnt it be cool to make that button yourself. Some students get the playing with power feeling but most dont I just find me tedious :D
