I have a very high spec machine with windows 10 installed.

Is there a way to allow multiple users to remote access and use the machine at the same time?

What is the purpose for allowing remote access to multiple users on this windows machine?

If it is for tasks that are not specific to the windows platform, most Linux distros will allow multiple user access, with no special configuration.

I built this machine for someone at my organisation, i believe its for Matlab usage, they would like multiple members of their team to be able to remotely use the machine at the same time.

Yup. Last I checked, Matlab had Linux installations available for use.

Linux, being a true multiuser OS, would make it an easier (and far less costly) implementation than trying to do it on windows.

Thanks for your time guys,

So to clarify, its not possible on windows 10?

This team seems to have money to burn, so cost wouldn't be an issue, if i have to go with windows server then so be it although ideally it would be nice to avoid having to do that.
 
What you're looking for under Windows is Virtual Desktop Environment. Even if you install Windows Server, it allows for up to two independent sessions, after that you have to install Terminal Server and CALs. You're looking at like $5k just in software licenses. And I'm not sure whether Mathlab license allows for that, either.

Multiple simultaneous users, no.

With "money to burn", either a Windows server license, or Linux.
But with "money to burn", why a single box for this?

Im building another four high spec machines for their team but this particular one they wanted to be able to remote into.
