Application and virtualization server that provides applications to clients
I am looking mostly for a bit of direction on what Linux OS and/or software is available or best for creating my own "application server" for a home network.
Ideally, I want to be able to supply a Windows/Linux/OS X/other OS application to a remote client, regardless of the client operating system (most importantly Linux and Windows). I don't want to supply a full desktop environment, even though I would also like to do this, I just want to supply the application.
In my mind, it seems like there would be multiple virtual machines with different OS's running on a single server, and applications within those virtual machines are supplied to a client workstation/laptop.
This would operate over a home network and perhaps also over the internet.
I currently know that Citrix does something similar, because I've used it as a client (although I don't know the details behind it), and I am currently using VirtualBox on my workstation to run multiple OS's.
