Doesn't matter the platform either.

I prefer VNC for a HTPC. The windows RDP will close the distant session if opened when you connect, unlike a VNC application (or most of 'em.) + You can't connect with RDP on a windows home edition. (well, it is not set up out of the box, Don't know if you can add it). But as you got an MSDAA, should'nt be a problem. Also, VNC is easily usable cross-platform with linux, and probably mac too. If your going to use windows, you may just use Win7. It's all fine for what you need to do.
