Auto boot to RDP

I've been browsing the many Linux setups but could not find exactly what I am looking for.

I'd like to boot a Linux kernel and be able to RDP to a windows computer. More specifically, I would like Linux to boot from a USB drive, display a small window where I would type in the computer name I want to connect to and press [ENTER] to connect.

If someone disconnects from the RDP session it would return to the Linux display asking for the next computer to connect to.

Is there a version of Linux / Ubuntu that does this?

Thanks for your time
