Are there any remote desktop applications that make it possible to view [each window from one desktop] separately in another desktop (like "seamless mode" in Virtualbox?) I want to view each application window from a remote computer separately.

What OS is running on the 'server'? – Zoredache Jun 26 '12 at 22:51
Neither of the operating systems are hosted on a server. What does "server" refer to in this case? – Anderson Green Jun 27 '12 at 0:56

I recommend you teamviewer. It's very complete, easy to use and available in almost any platform.

Also in wikipedia you have a comparison among all the remote desktop software. One of the fields is seamless window.

If you're coming from a Unix-like environment, Rdesktop >= 1.5 has a seamless option. You'll need a couple of supporting bits on the remote server, but they're free and source is available --

Can you clarify what you mean by "supporting bits on the remote server?" – Anderson Green Jun 26 '12 at 21:44

You can do this with Citrix. It has an application mode as well as a desktop mode. In application mode, the remote application presents its windows separately on the local desktop.

There is a related question: as well.

For VNC, MetaVNC

This WikiPedia article may also help.

In Remote Utilities ( you can switch between a tabbed mode and a separate window mode, if that's what you mean.

Hope that helps.
