Since the beginning of October 2012 I have been using KRDC and X11VNC to 
run my desktop in western Canada from a number of places across the US from 
east coast to west and in-between, very effectively. 

On my home machine I run

    x11vnc -usepw -forever -nomodtweak -display :0

and on my laptop I run KRDC, sometimes through an SSH tunnel, usually 
through a wireless connection. Speed has never really been an issue except 
when I'm using a shared-wireless link in some cheap motel that's using a 
home-grade router. Then I just tell KRDC I'm on a slower connection and it 
limits the colour-depth of the transmitted display, and maybe other things.

It's been a perfect solution for me!
