I agree that trading using a machine on internet/remote desktop combination is not good and certainly not planning to have much interaction with remote machine. However wanted to have the "best" possible way(with acceptable limitations this setup is likely to bring) to access the remote desktop as needed basis and is the reason to explore this route.
I just wanted to add that years ago I loved Ubuntu. But then I grew up, and would never choose Ubuntu over Debian these days.
If I were to sway from Debian, it would probably be to Arch.

Guys, i used SC with Crossover (OSX Lion, Mac Pro 8Gb Ram, 2x ATI Radeon 5700, 4x Monitors).
Why i switched over to WIndows (yes, i hate it too) was because the Graphics performance with Crossover was so bad.
I use semitransparent extending rectangles a lot for S/R Zones in SC, and they killed the performance. Everything was painfully slow with SC when there were multiple of those rectangles at 4 charts.
After installing Windows 8,1 on the same Mac, SC worked like a charm from then on. Can put endless numbers of those zones on endless charts and still, everything is smooth and nice with sierra.
Is anybody else experiencing problems with those extending rectangles whild running Sierra through Wine/Crossover on OSX or Linux? Can anybody confirm smooth performance?
I'd give it another shot (because i really hate windows) if there is a trick to boost that 2D performance on wine @osx. I've read of you guys tuning it for Linux, but not OSX.
ps: well, when the native Linux version of SC comes out, i'm sold
