I'm going to be going to college soon and the laptop I have is rather pathetic. I'd like to run Linux Mint on my desktop and remotely access it using my laptop. Unlike what people usually use Remote Desktop programs for, I want my laptop to, in essence, BE my desktop. To use it's processing power and everything...basically just be a remote screen and keyboard. I THINK that might be FAT client, but I'm not sure.
I know of VNC, x2go, FreeNX, and NoMachines. Which of these would be best for what I want, or is there something better?
