Right now the only reason I have windows installed ( on it's own drive ) is that I need to connect to my computer at work and it's behind a TS gateway. Does anyone know of a RDP v6 compatible client for Ubuntu that can be configured for such a task?

A good command line client that is RDPv6 compatible is rdesktop. Rdesktop can be installed with this command:

sudo apt-get install rdesktop

From there you can connect to a server by following these directions:

There are many front ends available for rdesktop too, such as Gnome-RDP.
