    Hello,

    I was looking for a remote desktop solution that would allow me to access my OS X iMac from my PC laptop that can run either Windows 7 or Ubuntu. I would prefer the solution to be free but I am open to every software idea and I have no preference between accessing OS X from Windows 7 or Ubuntu.

    Thank you for your help!

    Or you can use Logmein.com

    It has the free version which works great.

    Thanks for the recommendations, I am using logmein and it works great, I notice it says I have a 30 day free trial, after that can I still use the free version or do I have to buy a subscription?

    No you would then be switched over to the free version.

    Here's the comparison chart:

    For me myself, the free version is more than useful.
