only slight menu support. A good remote desk to use is cygwin. Its free and works well. Check out the docs for it.
For remote X you will need to edit /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf and change the

[xdmcp]
Enable=false

---to---


[xdmcp]
Enable=true


============================

My 2 cents..

If you run ssh from other linux machine (or from any machine having XServer, eg. W with cygwin would do), starting the ssh session with -X parameter, eg. ssh -X foo@bar.com, you should have X forwarding enabled and thus could start any graphical programs remotely.

For X Forwarding to work, it has to be enabled from /etc/X11/ssh/sshd_config with line
"X11Forwarding yes".
