Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The simple answer is yes. Linux supports that same network topologies as Microsoft does.  Linux is just an operating system that is on a computer or server and follows the same OSI model as does any other operating system does.

    Yes, it is supported, but though Linux has more security/ licensing issue, all software are not running smoothly, provided install their dependencies/ repository.

    Yes of course, clouding computing has nothing to do with Operating System, it allows all the kind of application software to be operated using internet-enabled device. I also used windows to provide cloud service, Red hat or other Linux distribution are usually considered because of their properties like flexibility, Robustness, but I want to say it doesn’t matter what OS you use to provide cloud services, simply at the end cloud is just like a server while cloud computing is a service provided by it.

    Linux VDI is can be defined in number of ways, the most obvious one is being able to use Linux based clients to access remote virtual desktops that could either be fixed or re-purposed workstations that are just being used as thin clients.
