How to Remote Manage Macs?
Microsoft have free software that allows me to remote manage Windows from Macs or from other Windows.
Do Macs have any built-in or free remote manage software?

ARD. Apple Remote Desktop. My tech uses it to manage about a 100 machines. It's around $500 for unlimited licenses. You can remote, push patches, and all kinds of cool stuff.
Edit: I think I misread your question. Leopard does have screen sharing built in that will allow you to remote machines like windows remote desktop.

If you want to manage your mac/other macs from your mac, Apple Remote Desktop is best, but OS X also has built in standard VNC that can work with any VNC client from any machine.
If you want to manage windows machines from a Mac, then make sure you set up Remote Desktop access to each one of those windows machines and you can use Remote Desktop Connection client for Mac. Available from:
Or you can use VNC to manage the windows PC's too.
