I want to be able to more easily work from home, but doing that is difficult. So I'm looking for tools that would make it easier.
Here's my setup:
At home I have:
- Desktop computer
- 3 monitors
- running Fedora 20 or Windows 7
At work I have:
- Laptop computer
- 1 external monitor and the laptop monitor
- running windows 8 with a windows 7 virtual machine (my development environment)
What I want: I want to be able to, from home, access my work computer and have each screen from the work computer on a separate screen at home. So that my laptop monitor would be monitor 1 at home, external work monitor would be monitor 2 at home and monitor 3 would still be my home computer.
At work, I typically have one monitor be the virtual machine (with occasionally putting other stuff on top from the host machine) and the other monitor is the host machine. What I suppose I could do is allow remote desktop on both the virtual and host machine for the main monitors, and put each on their own monitor at home... but that seems a bit clunky and inefficient, though not a bad backup.
At home I prefer to use my Linux installation, but if need be I could probably boot into windows for the duration of the work day. Are there any good pieces of software that can do this? I'd prefer cost to be
