There are a variety of ways to use a computer remotely in Linux:






Export an X Display

X Terminal

from http://www.linuxworld.com/site-stories/2001/0823.xterminal_p.html:

... For our purposes, an X terminal is a graphical dumb terminal. This is a device capable of providing a GUI console to access an "application server." Sticklers for accuracy may argue that a PC with local media and an operating system isn't an X terminal -- some point out that an X terminal is not a computer -- but if a machine behaves like an X terminal, I'm prepared to regard it as an X terminal. Linux makes it easy to configure any PC to act as a dedicated X terminal.

... for our purposes, an application server is a computer that not only stores applications (for example, Star Office) but that also executes these applications for remote display and input from -- you guessed it -- an X terminal.
