Which Solution: Remote Desktop? Virtual Desktop? Remote Terminal?
i have a question about remote connection, but i don't know exactly what kind of solution i'm looking for...
i have a desktop with quad-cpu and much bigger memory, and i have another laptop which is old and slow. My thinking is to make a server on the desktop, so that the laptop could share the cpu time and memory from desktop.
That is to say: there could be two persons in front of both computers, they log in using own username and they should not interrupt each others work, but all the programs should run on the desktop computer.
So Remote Desktop, VNC or TeamViewer etc. don't really match my needs...
I don't really know what we call this technology, but i know that citrix have this kind of business solution, what i wanna know is if there are any usable free or inexpensive solutions for personal/non-commercial use?
Thanks a lot!
Btw., my desktop is running Windows 7 Pro 64bit and Laptop is running Windows XP Pro 32bit.

There may be alternatives to Citrix, but the concept is basically to access a remote desktop on server where you run applications installed on server. If the performance is adequate you will gain in bandwidth and licensing costs, but the scenario you describe implies that the laptop should somehow share the resources of the server, physically(?)...
I am currently unaware of any inexpensive "citrix" solutions but I would think that is what you are after. Logging on the server, starting an app on server, but managing it on the laptop.
Have you looked in to a HDD and RAM upgrade of the Laptop?
