In 1994, Olivetti & Oracle Research Laboratory (Cambridge, England) developed the VNC. VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. Originally running on an ATM-connected thin client device, it was ported to other platforms, including Win32, Unix, GNU/Linux, and Mac OS. It is a remote display system which allows a thin client to remotely access a desktop GUI environment on another computer over the network. Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a remote desktop protocol to remote control another computer. ...

Since it is platform independent, you can remotely run an Apple desktop from a Windows client, or a Unix desktop from an Apple client, and so on. The thin client (called the VNC viewer) is small enough to fit on a floppy or run from a Java-enabled web browser. Other cool features include the ability to share a desktop session with more than one client, and the "stateless" nature of the VNC viewer.
