Yes. It is an easy way of getting enough screen area.
There is however no reason to watch the Linrad screen
once it is set up properly so you can also run both
programs on a single computer.

I do not really know what would be the bottleneck. There is a risk
that MAP65 holds the cpu for a too long time occasionally, but
there are a few countermeasures in case it would happen.
I do not use Windows myself so I am not so sure.

In principle NO.

Oooh! In terms of what I have been used to most of my
life it is a supercomputer:-) Really powerful!

Screen space.

I hope so, but I have no idea what to do.
