​In addition to my off-list reply, you might want to talk to your Linux
person to see if you can use VNC no NoMachine (https://www.nomachine.com/)
to get a Linux graphical desktop ​connection (similar in concept to Windows
Remote Desktop) going. If you can do this, and can get KDE as the desktop
environment, then you can have a very Windows-ish Linux desktop displayed
on your Windows machine. But it will still be nice even with Gnome, or
XFCE, or even one of the other desktops (Linux has a lot of them, but I
think KDE is most similar to Windows U.I.) This will allow you to use
RStudio on Linux or have multiple terminal sessions going for multiple R
sessions. But this will _not_ allow you to disconnect from Linux while
maintaining the graphical desktop. At least, I don't think you can do that.
I could be wrong.
