Ubuntu 22.04 with a desktop environment and RDP (Remote Desktop) access utilizes an XRDP client. This enables users to log into their VPS using a Windows RDP client, which comes preinstalled on all Windows systems.
XRDP is a free and open-source implementation of Microsoft RDP server that enables operating systems other than Microsoft Windows to provide a fully functional RDP-compatible remote desktop experience.
