The OVH VPS SSD range doesn't support windows by default, however their Cloud VPS range lets you choose between Windows and Linux before purchase.

It is not a good news for me because I wanted to install Windows on a VPS.
Honestly I want to run several programs which running on my Windows but running them on a VPS, I am thinking about Ubuntu but not sure it can help me to run Windows programs there.

Kubuntu is filmy of Ubuntu and Linux based but if you coming from windows word then will find maybe KUbuntu little easier to work as well as there are a lot of applications included designed to fit with the style and theme of Kubuntu

With Linux, you have the choice between RDP, VNC or X2Go to access to your remote desktop.
If you are using windows on your computer, you will probably choose RDP.

For that purpose, just install the package xrdp :

apt update && apt install xrdp
Then depending on the desktop environnement, you may have to adapt some settings.

I could logg into X2Go and access Kubuntu Desktop but a strange thing is, I bought server location in Canada but when I accessed web browser on Kubuntu, it tell my IP was in EU. :)
