Is There a LogMeIn Equivalent for Linux?

I'm considering migrating one of my corporate clients to Linux. They are an all-Windows-XP shop and Microsoft is ending XP support very soon. My client absolutely does not have the money to buy all new Windows PCs. Hence my idea to move to Linux.

So far I have been using LogMeIn to provide remote support for them. However I know that LogMeIn does not currently have a native Linux client available.

What are my options to approximate the functionality of LogMeIn as closely as possible on a Linux workstation?

Thanks in advance.

I prefer ScreenConnect - allows you to become LogMeIn - you install a server that your clients maintain a connection to and basically, you have the same functionality as LogMeIn, GoToAssist/LogMeIn123, and GoToMeeting for roughly $300 per concurrent connection, one time fee.
