The Microsoft RDC solution is free for OS X, useful for controlling Windows 7 computers from your Mac.

The problem with both Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection and Mac OS X screen sharing is that they don't allow control of the GPU from the client. The HP solution does:

It is not clear to me whether you could do operations that used CUDA or OpenCL GPU computation on the workstation and see the results on the client.

I think that you can buy a license for non HP workstations, but it is Windows 7 and Linux only.

yes that might be, but i guess is still slower than working local due the limits of the network, even a gigabit network will be slow showing all graphics. so for using as workstation no fun i assume.

cuda or the like will certainly work on anything, its needs no ogl. this even works on standard remote desktop.

in more far future i guess we all will work on some terminals that do not compute anythng themelves but are only showing the results.
