Comment on Timbuktu Pro

I disagree. Timbuktu has many advantages over VNC that make it worth spending the extra money for the software. For one, it is much faster then VNC, and it is more secure also, with the automatic SSH tunneling and ability to set multiple users with different privileges. Timbuktu also works better over slower connections with the color reduction and caching. I also like that with Timbuktu you can automatically track client machines as their DHCP addresses change. Now mind you, VNC is cool, and it is great that it is open source, but if you use remote control as a daily part of your job, there's no substitute for a commercial product like Timbuktu -- it's like comparing TextEdit to MS Word.
