What the other answer describe is called "desktop sharing" and is not the same thing as "remote desktop" . See the accepted answer for this question for more explanation :
"Remote Desktop" in Ubuntu is not the same thing as in Windows. It's intended to share your running desktop with someone else. In 11.10, it's been renamed to "Desktop Sharing" to better reflect that.
sudo apt-get install xrdp. This allows you to connect to the Ubuntu from RDP software or remote desktop of windows.
