Like you here. Always curious. I did this a couple of ways when I first got the phone.
Teamviewer for Android was the best. Obviously need Linux version on the PC.

You can use any vnc client, search word "vnc" on Market and install x11vnc package on Debian.

Teamviewer work as expected because thats what I use to help others. Thanks for a point in the right direction. Now I just have to figure out the setup up to use VNC. Got x11vnc setup up and android-vnc-viewer on phone.
