    Hi!

    Is there a software capable of remote desktop connections to a Windows 10 OS from a Linux remote device? If so, please recommend one. Any software that can interact with Windows OSs is needed here.

    These are all compatible with Linux? Would Ubuntu be able to accomplish this?

    according to the blurb above, which I took directly from teamviewers webpage.......Yes.

    I am running Linux Mint (18.3), and it downloaded and installed very easily

    I dont have an instance of win 10 running atm, but I would assume it would install there just as easily

    TeamViewer is an excellent tool and free for personal use. You can't mix versions 12 and the latest 13 though, so just be sure to get the same series on all your devices.

    Cheers
