No they're in order by frequency. The default tab is popularity at the top, click on "Name" for alphabetical order. There sure is a lot of negative reaction to that site, it's great to be loyal and all but some of the reaction has been pretty unjustified.

Seconded. UltraVNC is good. Just make sure you use a secure/encryption plugin if you plan on using it over the tubes.
[Edit: Most of the *VNC apps all use the same protocol[^], and are pretty interchangeable anyway. At work all the PC's have RealVNC running as the server, but we tend to use either UltraVNC or TightVNC as clients]
If you are using Linux, rdesktop is great. It can connect to both Windows and Linux OS from anywhere. rdesktop may have a windows version too... Otherwise I can suggest you to use default Remote desktop over Hamachi.
On Windows XP Pro/Vista Business/Windows Server machines, use remote desktop.
XP Home and Vista Home don't support remote desktop. But Windows Live Mesh comes bundled with new remote desktop (one that even lets you copy/paste files between remote and local), and it works even on the home editions. It's free.
