OS X has built screen sharing capability via the included Screen Sharing application.  You can connect to any mac with screen sharing (or remote administration) turned on OR any PC running a VNC server.  This has proved invaluable around here where people in separate offices need to show each other things on their screen without needing to be in the same room. 

The screen sharing app is powerful in it’s own right (even though I use ARD for myself) and this article from Macworld shows how to make it even easier to use.  By default, you have to put in an address or DNS name every time you want to make a connection.  The tips in this article show how to modify the defaults to make a list of computers to connect to show up when you start the screen sharing app.  This list shows both Bonjour computers and those remembered from previous connections.  Nice.
