I have a Linux desktop that is just easier to program on (for me) than a laptop. I have a laptop running Windows 7 that I want to write some programs (C++/C#) with VS on the remote laptop. What are my alternatives and/or the best practice for getting a full remote Windows gui display on linux? Kubuntu, if that matters.

p.s. I don't want to go the virtual machine route to program in VS.

  • you can share Windows 7 desktop like this and connect from Linux with RDP client (rdesktop )

  • another option is some free online service like teamviewer

  • VNC server / client is another option
