I am trying to help out a very small business with a cost effective solution, but where users have to remote into their Windows 7 VM to do work so they do not save anything on the local Linux physical workstation. I was thinking about doing the following:

  • Image the existing Windows 7 systems and use those licenses to create the VMs on the Hyper-V server
  • Remove Windows 7 on the physical workstations and install the free Linux OS like Ubuntu or something comparable
  • Then have the users remote into their Windows 7 VM from the Linux workstation at their desks

My question is, is this a possible solution and if so, how would I get the Ubuntu or some Linux variant to remote to the Windows 7 VM?

I will be installing Windows Server 2012 Essentials with Remote Web Access and I wouldn't know how to connect to that via a Linux OS. Could Rdesktop, TSclient, or Remmina do this for me?

Thanks
