Default Linux Remote

Hi, quick question(s)

I'm pretty new to linux, is there a remote desktop feature built into linux? If so can someone point me to the right direction?

Thanks in advance.

Symantics

Remote access -- why would you possibly want to view your desktop when Command line is so much faster and more secure?

you could establish the VNC session through a secure tunnel... Now it's just as secure, and you are free to use the terminal (if thats your thing) and you can use the graphical programs you can't use over the command line session.
