How can I work remotely on Windows 8 machine from my Ubuntu 10.04 PC?

Is there any guide how to set up remote desktop and VNC this way?
(I don't want to use TeamViewer).

Try TightVNC!

There is a Java-standalone client to use on different systems. You don't need the TightVNC-server to use the client.

If you wan't to use it over the internet use Dynamic DNS to connect to your network.

If you stay in the same network everything should be fine just with a VNC server + client.
