As Bojun has alluded to, it seems like MultiPoint requires tight
integration with the OS's windowing engine.  And for MultiPoint to
work with Linux it would have to work with X Server.  It's possible it
does although I'd be quite surprised.  If it doesn't support X Server
then you'd either have to implement something yourself *if* MultiPoint
has an API available or see how far you can get cobbling something
together with something like VNC.  The good news is VNC is open source
so you could use that to build something completely custom.

Oh, here some more info:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_MultiPoint - looks like there's an SDK
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_Terminal_Server_Project - this is
probably your best option, IMO
