I’m trying to figure out a way to run a raspberry pi as a very basic desktop using linux, but with the ability to “run” a program stored on a Windows 10 Pro-N “server” in the house. Basically (and using this as an example), I want to run the Microsoft Office Suite on/from the Windows 10 machine but see it on the Pi, so the W10 machine does all the work, the processing, etc, and the Pi is ALMOST like a thin client.....but I want the pi to function otherwise ( like using chromium) without the W10 machine being on. The only purpose of the W10 machine is to run a select few Windows programs.
*I do not want to remote into the W10 Machine as one would with a program like teamviewer.
**Citrix XenApp allows you to "publish applications that users can remotely connect to" which is, I guess, what I want to do, but without the cost of a Citrix subscription because this is for home use.
Edit: I want Application Virtualization! That's the word! Ideas?
