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. You can install OpenSSH server on you Windows machines but its not exactly native, I suggest just installing it on your Linux machines until your comfortable with it. 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 FileZilla in SFTP mode to securely transfer files between your Windows and Linux machines
Use FreeNX and and the free cross-platform NX client app from NoMachine
I also like using TightVNC for remote controlling machines
The Linux Alternative Project” shows you Windows equivalent programs are available in Linux (more than you think!).  Find a whole Googles-worth here
Get a little help switching from Windows to Linux over at Win2Lin.info

Regarding Public Service Announcement: If you have a working laptop computer you want to donate please send an email to “noel.saliba AT gmail.com” or drop in the IRC chat room #linuxcrazy on freenode.net and ask “weidedout” your questions.
