"Although this thread is crap already I'll just point out a few things. UltraVNC offers encryption built-in. It also has a Video Driver addon that makes it perform just as fast as RDP over slow connections. For Lan use even without the Video Driver VNC performs just as well as RDP."

Wrong. Absolutely totally wrong.

VNC is nowhere near as fast or transparent as RDP on LAN or remote use. It's slower in all it's variants and implementations.
