I'm actually very enamored with NX from NoMachine. NX is a compatible substitute for VNC. I've spent time examining RealVNC versus NX performance in side-by-side comparisons (visual/interactive view only). I've noted very substantive performance advantages for Flash applications running on browsers in the NX client.
In both cases, I was using the native clients, as opposed to the Java-based clients. At any rate, don't forget to examine NX. -M J.

Thanks, Marc. That's a helpful tip. With Chrome/Android becoming very popular on tablets and smart phones, it makes sense to have a nice solution for that platform. I think Java would work well-enough for me, even if it is slow. I would avoid using VNC on my little devices, but would hugely value having the option available in a crunch.
