The closest Akhilesh can get is VNC I guess. Mandrake in perticular has
great support for it, you can export the currect session using VNC, which
I have not yet figured out how to do in SuSE for example [KDE's krfb sucks
as it only allows to connect to your desktop within an hour of creating an
invitation; is there any Gnome counterpart? Though KDE's Remote Desktop
Connection Client is completely awesome!]

Mandrake is supposed to be the easiest distro for newbies, with URPMI
matching apt from Debian with some very nice repositories. I am surprised
people here dont use it much. Unlike SuSE and probably Redhat its
completely GPL too.
