What protocol/application would you use for a virtual desktop environment (VDI)?

I have a central server with lots of horse power. Currently it is setup with Xen and I have a few Gentoo guest VMs. I would like to pass the Gentoo VM's out to users on the local LAN as virtual desktops. VNC is the first one that comes to mind.

The virtual desktops would cover most basic web tasks like email, web surfing, and youtube. Of all those I would guess youtube would be the hardest, involving both streaming video and audio.

My users currently have a mix of windows and macs so the client will need to support both.

Any ideas?
