Maybe I am just biased towards !machine, but I found the installation of
thsi product more straightforward (admittedly a subjective viewpoint,
influenced by previous experiences) and found the end result to behave more
like a local X session than an emulation. I alaso believe that the
performance is better, but this could be influenced by not comparing simialr
spec environments. Can't really remember as I *install*stopped using VNC
when I located !machine and have no intention of going back.
I admit that my opinions are probably subjective and possibly biased, but it
is an alternative to VNC, which was what the subject line asked for.
