I started programming BASIC on an old HP mini as a child in the '70's, and later learned how to patch z80 code into an 8080 assembler on an Epson QX-10. I finally got out of my Arts degree program to get a BA in CS, and have eventually become an old UNIX guy working on Linux network drivers.

To keep the cost even lower, the satellite computers can run VNC on Linux and not pay for the extra Windows licenses.

comment qemu - fastest user-mode emulation platform?
This sounds like you're going to run a Linux qemu VM in a Linux container on a Linux-based OpenVZ. Is there a reason for the 3 layer approach? This seems excessive.

If the Dr is the only user, the traffic shouldn't be a problem.

Given that it is for a Dr's office, I rather imagine the requirement is to use a specific PC-based health care records application that has little to no way to export data to a web application.

An alternative to Remote Desktop is VNC, which does allow for multiple connections to the same live desktop.

comment test port by telnet command on localhost (OS=windows)?
I assume you're trying to test the HW port - if so, this may not get you what you want. I don't know Windows networking as well as another OS, but the OS will likely short circuit the data path and never actually hit the hardware.

comment How can know driver of TV tuner?
You're right, I missed that. However, I would think that in Windows you can get similar information by going into the Device Manager and looking at the Properties on the device. Or boot up a Linux Live CD on the machine and use the Linux tools to inspect the hardware.
