    The built-in screen sharing app is actually a VNC client...

    And it's a bit hard to find. :)

    /System/Library/CoreServices/Screen Sharing.app

    Chicken of the vnc is an open source alternative to the supplied version.

    I find that the built-in app is horribly slow.

    I use Chicken of the VNC (http://sourceforge.net/projects/cotvnc/) which is orders of magnitude faster (at least when hitting the UVNC server on my mom's Windows 7 machine).

    Spidey!!!
