Cross-Platform, Crosstown

Remote DesktopMicrosoft’s Remote Desktop Connection client for Mac OS Xinitially left me unfazed because Timbuktu offers roughly the same thing. That is, it allows me to connect to my Windows XP Professional desktop from home and control the entire machine remotely. But then I realized that it’s a really great cross-platform product from Microsoft, that Microsoft published it for no better reason than it’s really, really nifty, and on top of that, they give it away absolutely free. Which solidifies my contention that the Macintosh Business Unit of Microsoft is one of the coolest software publishers anywhere.
