By "support" do you mean "support of computer operations" like how to do
something in OpenOffice? So a student would hit a web page to request help
and a support person can then remotely see/controll their desktop?

In short, client-less and cross platform is an oxymoron. Each system will
require it's own method to share desktop bits.

As long as the general population is passive, apathetic, diverted to
consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they
please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome.
