Hey ya’ll, xrdp is pretty brilliant.

I use it with Xubuntu (thus, XFCE) and a guide for that can be found here.

If you want a GUI for remote Linux boxes and are tired of goofing around with VNC and its tendency to break from release to release, this is your ticket. It also supports session persistence, is stable and pretty fast.

I like it in particular because I can toss it in with my other RDP connection files in MacOS and it just works, but I’ve tried connecting from three different OSes now and it works flawlessly.
