Yes, but... they're *not* rdp replacements, for the reasons I've
already mentioned. They're great at what they do, and the vnc protocol
is completely cross-platform, but they don't allow for remote logins
without running into the mousewar situations that accompany screen
sharing. To be fair, the single-user rdp server built into XP pro has
some limitations as well, but it's quite a different beast from the
screen-sharing apps.
