Can two users simultaneously share one pc

I have a Intel Core i3 laptop, a set of extra monitor, mouse and keyboard, and what I want is to be able to support two independent users, one directly on laptop and one using the extra monitor, mouse and keyboard. I guess this is possible, But how?

That is not possible with normal Windows versions (Terminal Server would be something else) on a direct way.

It may be possible by using a virtual machine with dedicated mouse and keyboard, directly passed through to it. Of course, in that case you need enough computing power and a second operating system on the VM.

The X Windows System used by unix-based operating systems may support this, but I am not familiar with unix-based OS.
