I'd like to see proper support for multiseat in RHEL 7. This is targeted for the desktop market and it's primary competitor is Microsoft Windows Multipoint Server.
Multiseat was present in the past but (IIRC) got lost after GDM 2.20 and the switch to ConsoleKit:
Now with the migration to systemd there's planned support for multiseat but I haven't tested it yet. I have all the necessary equipment to test though.
Make sure that all bits are in place for multiseat to work:
* systemd / gdm support
* driver support, primarily udlfb for USB framebuffer devices
* fix this bug if possible https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=734812
Currently I'm maintaining a custom multiseat solution on RHEL6 which more or less works nice. For some thought and info please see this article:
