Get your own System76 computer with 64-Ubuntu pre installed
Install Webmin on all your Linux machines to make administering them easy
Install OpenSSH server on you Linux machines.

Consider changing your default SSH from 22 to something else, see this link for some help. (It’s easy to do in Webmin too)

Use FreeNX and and the free cross-platform NX client app from NoMachine
I also like using TightVNC for remote controlling machines
