Hmmm. I'm not sure I follow you. I guess it is an issue of what you
want to use rdp for. I typically want to logon to a computer at home
or one of my servers. Both VNC and LogMeIn work well for that. I'm not
wanting to 'share a screen' with another, just remotely control
another machine--- that's what I use it for.
