You can use TeamViewer: http://www.teamviewer.com/

It's very easy to install in any Operating System and very easy to connect (you just need to introduce the ID and PIN of the computer you want to control).

  • so the Windows user need to install the teamviewer application ?and can I remotely log in from my ubuntu machine to use the windows 8 machine..

  • 1) Yes 2) Yes all you need to do is get the ID and PIN provided by the program running on the computer you want to control and introduce them in the computer from which you want to control the other.

Yes you can use

Remmina Remote desktop client

Its one of many available, and you do not need 3rd party software like Team Viewer.

Other apps for that that you can use on ubuntu are:

Remotedesktop Client,2X Client RDP / Remote Desktop

you can also use rdesktop from terminal

With any of those you do not need anything installed on the windows machine
