Enter NoMachine. NoMachine NX is a Terminal Server and Remote Access solution based on a comprising set of enterprise class open source technologies. NoMachine NX performs just as well as MS Remote Desktop (if not better).
If you are interested in learning how to install NoMachine on your Ubuntu Desktop, sit back, watch, and learn."
