Is there any Linux desktop distribution support multiple user login?


http://www.blogsdna.com/2336/enable-...-windows-7.htm

Windows 7 allow multiple user login to windows 7 via remote desktop.

Is there any Linux desktop distribution support multiple user login via remote desktop?

Virtually every linux distro can allow this, but it doesn't use the Windows RDP protocol. There are several options. Some just display remote programs on a local machine such as X over ssh, Xming, or XDMCP. Complete desktops (i.e. similar to Windows Remote Desktop) can be achieved with VNC over ssh or NX (FreeNX or NoMachine's NX).

There's a program called gnome-rdp which allows you to connect using the M$ rpd protocol. There's
also a KDE version IIRC.

gnome-rdp is just a gui frontend to RDP (Windows Remote Desktop), VNC, and X over ssh.

EDIT: Found a couple more things I've never used - TeamViewer (commercial, but free for personal use) and Telepathy.
