Seconded.  I use freenx, too.  For me, it provides a better experience 
than VNC, Radmin, RDP, PCoIP (even on a zero client device), and 
whatever VMware uses when you open a console in vSphere Client.  That 
goes for speed and smoothness of display updates and even just copying 
and pasting text into the remote machine.
