Remote Desktop

It's called RDP, or remote desktop protocol developer by Microsoft: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_Desktop_Protocol

I use it a lot for going from Debian to Win8.

The only problem is, you have to patch the OS to enable multi-user mode, but if that isn't needed, everything is fine.

You do have to enable Remote Desktop Assistance for this to work, but other than that, just have to host get an RDP client.

On Linux, Remmina is quite good. On Windows, well, there's a built in client.

The software that is built in only allows for your desktop to be taken control of.

If he is not using a windows professional or windows ultimate os then he won't be able to make use of the built in software. Because the basic os(Wndows Home Premium) doesn't come with the ability to take control of another desktop.
