I have a client that would like to setup a single machine to support one local user and up to 3 remote users simultaneously. All users will be using the same software. There is no domain in the office and currently all network sharing is done with simple shares from an XP machine. The idea would be to replace the XP machine with something more robust that will support RDS. No need for a domain. I am not sure what the best solution is in this case.

I'm assuming that when you say "up to 3 remote users simultaneously" that you mean that each user would be running his/her own desktop. You can't use a workstation operating system to support muliple simultaneous users as you've described.  You could:  (a) set up a Windows 2008 (or 2012) server with remote desktop services configured; or, (b) you could use a hypervisor (i.e., VMWare ESXi) and then create a virtual workstation for each user.
