begin Bill Jonas quotation:

The good news is that essentially every distribution except for the
miniature ones now includes VNC Viewer as prepackaged software. Highly
recommended for ongoing access to those nice little Win32 or MacOS
packages that you think will always stand between you and routine Linux
desktop usage (Quicken, Quickbooks...).
By default, VNC connections have negligible security -- but, if you
wanted security, you wouldn't have MS-Windows boxes around.
_However_ (in some situations), you can also redirect a VNC session over
an SSH tunnel, if so desired:
...which also has the benefit of compressing the bitstream.
