I haven't used Windows for a decade, and I've never tried using Windows on a remote machine; how easy is it to set up a Windows machine to run headless? In an ideal world I'd want to SSH in; I don't remember command-line equivalents to 'top' and 'uptime' when I last used Windows - there's the graphical task manager which I suppose I could use via VNC - but it was long ago.
ssh servers have existed on Windows for many years. I used ssh to connect to a Win2K box IIRC.

VNC servers also exist for Windoze but you might also wish to consider RDP clients on Linux et al.
