Actually, Apple Remote Desktop provides an excellent and seamless
remote access and administration interface to OS X's desktop. It's
an additional expense, but very useful for remote administration of
Mac stuff which requires the GUI.
You'd actually be surprised as to how little the GUI is actually
*required* for OS X admin; almost every configuration option has a
command-line-scriptable interface. Just because the system isn't
familiar to you, doesn't mean that the functionality isn't there.
