I agree with you that UltraVNC is great, BUT, it works well with Windows to Windows only. UltraVNC is not available for Linux. It just acts in basic VNC mode
A great feature of UltraVNC is that it enables encryption. regular VNC does not have encryption. I also do like the UltraVNC single-click and use it at work along with the Windows Remote Assistance.
****EDIT: Remote assistance in Windows XP is good, but it requires the client to open a port. With UltraVNC single-click, your client connects to YOU, so they don't have to worry about their ports. Again, this is Windows ONLY!
