RISC OS Together with sharing files over a network, being able to control another computer remotely is particularly appealing to users with their own networks - especially when printers, scanners and other gadgets are connected to the alien machine. RISC OS has a number of applications to achieve this and while each are very similar, they have their own individual features that make them stand out in different ways.

The basic VNC is fairly slow, because has to be compatible with quite few platforms, so it uses purely image transmission to draw the desktop.

Using MS Windows, you will find better performance using UltraVNC, that has available a native driver that streamlines some operations with directives, much like MS own Remote Desktop.

But for some basic maintenance operations, VNC is quite usable.
