Hell-lo! Clue phone ringing! Your boss doesen't want you to use any other solution than Windows, get the picture? If such a thing as an RDP<->XWindows conversion daemon existed, your boss would find some other nit picky thing that he would hold up as a deal-breaker. Then if that was fixed he would find some other thing. And on and on and on. What you need to do is recognize that the place your working at is hopelessly borked as long as your boss is working there, and just keep your head down and look for a better job somewhere else. If you put the same effort looking for a better place to work as your putting into trying to convince your boss to do something he's simply afraid of doing, you would surely find one. People like your boss are only convinced by evolutionary changes. What will happen one of these days is a problem will come up that cannot be fixed by the old Microsoft standbys, and your boss will be fired for incompetence. Then when he goes to find another job everyone will be asking him if he has any Linux experience, and at that time he will suddenly start thinking it might be a good idea to start looking into this yoo-niks thing.
