For example xming (for access Linux/Unix X Window application on Windows host) I be able to select multiwindow mode when each Linux windows show as resular MS Windows application:

enter image description here

But I don't know if this possible in revert direction: MS Windows application on X without limiting them to desktop area...

rdesktop have some support for requested functionality through SeamlessRDP but currently has limitations (despite fact that also require proprietary components...):

Windows 7 and Windows 8 are not supported.

What exactly is the question? At this point it appears you want a list of products that might meet your requirements which wouldn't be on topic to Super User. I would use a virtual machine like vmware and use unity mode to acomplish a seamless remote desktop requirement. Have you even tried to see if SeamlessRDP works with Windows 7 because if it works with Windows Vista there isn't a technical reason it shouldn't work. – Ramhound Feb 28 '13 at 13:34
Windows 7 and Windows 8 are not supported. is official statement from project home page... – gavenkoa Feb 28 '13 at 14:58
I don't want a complete list of products. I am interesting only in one product... Thanks for suggestion about vmware + unity mode. I will be glad to see equivalent feature in VirtualBox... Thnks for info +1 – gavenkoa Feb 28 '13 at 15:00
An incomplete list of products is still a list which wouldn't be very constructive. I am aware what the project says is and isn't supported it also clearly has NOT been updated recently. – Ramhound Feb 28 '13 at 15:10

Certainly RDP does support seamless windows mode. I believe that it was introduced at least by the time of XP if not earlier. Windows 7 & 8 versions of RDP both have the capability.

So you need to have an RDP client that supports it. As Ramhound has said, I would give SeamlessRDP a go to see if it will work.

Alternatively, you will need to look for another tool.

@gavenkoa - If you can't find other tools why place the burden on us to find and suggest them? If you have a problem we can help solve it of course. – Ramhound Feb 28 '13 at 15:09
@Ramhound You are right. +1 – gavenkoa Feb 28 '13 at 15:10
