Hello, I've completed the initial server setup following this guide

Would any of you be kind enough to link to a tutorial on what the next step is to be able to access a Remote Desktop from my Mac at home. Thanks in advance.

You need to follow this..

But why would you need Desktop ??

Because the services needed for the same alone would require 1GB RAM to run.. CLI is best to configure servers since they wont need additional services hence less requirement of RAM..

VNC will allow you to connect to your server remotely, as well as be able to use your keyboard, mouse, and monitor to interface with that server. Get it setup on your Ubuntu 12 cloud server.

In order to access remote desktop from your MAC computer, you need to use tools like logmein, R-HUB remote support servers, gotomypc etc.
