I know I have said this before, but…
What I think Microsoft should have done with Windows 8 is to have left the Metro start screen off of the desktop interface and made it so that interface was presented when RDP’d to from an iPad/iPhone/Android device.
The presentation should be separate and geared to the device. ….like mobile CSS ….but not suck.
Plex, Chromecast and Roku are good examples of having a phone interface for server.
I’ve used X forwarding/nomachine/TS RemoteApp/Citrix on desktops clients ….meh.
…….a webservice with an interface designed for the device would be better.
This could make your mobile device less like a Swiss Army knife and more like a proper tool for the job.

I believe almost all apps should be web, and OS agnostic (client side) I currently do this with Plex, sonarr, couch potato, SABnzbd, my internal dokuwiki, and my rokus. All running on a poweredge r410 and fedora server 22.
Also runs kvms to do my biddings/err for testing. Oh also kimchi works pretty well, to the point of no longer being forced to X forwarding virt-manager. Spins up template vm's in a snap.
KVM is mighty snappy when you remote in using RDP or nomachine.

It be nice to use all the Haswell desktops hooked up to GbE for something other than dumb terminals.
