online linux desktop


I would like to attempt to create a system like the one they have on netcubicle. I would like to know what kind of software you'd need for this. since i'm not familiar (don't know any) with any software that could do this.

What you're looking for is a VNC server. Most likely you already have one installed on your system. Most versions of linux come with it. Just set up your VNC software to accept clients (you probably want a password). After that all you have to do is open up a VNC client on the computer you're accessing the server from. There is VNC software built for all operating systems.
