Recommend Remote Desktop Software

Please recommend remote desktop software known to work with N2, ARM and Ubuntu accessing from Windows. Free would be nice.

Thanks!

I always prefer vino as a VNC server.
Although I have experimented with xpra as well it can be ok as well.

@meveric: does vino allow you to attach to a running session, like x11vnc?

It ONLY attaches to running session. I don't think there's an option to open a new session.

I asked the same question on Reddit after trying like 6 different RDP/VNC solutions, and someone recommended NoMachine. Worked perfectly the first time, truly cross platform, and free! In fact it's a really good program, I use it on most of my devices now.
