Is it possible to remotely login to a Mac a la X11?

One thing that I like about Linux is that it's (relatively) easy to use a box in more then one people a time, via gdm or kdm. Or, in emergency cases, via ssh -X.

"Yes/no. As freiheit explained yes you can connect using VNC, etc.

However having more than one person logged in use the computer at once? You can't out of the box - at least when it comes to a GUI. You can have multiple people logged in via SSH and such, but something akin to Terminal Server on Windows - not out of the box.

If you want multiple people to log in and use a GUI instance check out AquaConnect"
