The first web page below has this:
We plan to port as many features as possible under Unix/Linux and the
JavaViewer and hope that some developpers around the world will help us
in this hard task :)
And if you read their message archive, it's clear that the intent is to
answer yes to both questions, although at the moment they're
concentrating on getting the core, new functionality to work in

I am mostly a Unix/Sun Solaris user but I also have a Win 2K desktop and
Linux box at home. I was enthused to see the Ultr@VNC announcement.
posts of the past few days, however, leave me apprehensive which I
is undeserved. There are only 2 questions that the Ultr@VNC developers
to answer to silence the controversy.
1. Is the Ultr@VNC VIEWER fully compatible with all other VNC servers
Tight, etc.) for viewing a session on any other OS including other
2. Is the Ultr@VNC SERVER fully compatible with all other VNC viewers
serving a session on any other OS including other windows flavors?
Answer yes to both and that should end this somewhat tedious discussion.
Also, adding a qualifier to your web page stating that this is a WinVNC
replacement *NOT* in any way intended for Xvnc users may go a long way
stem the confusion. I, for one, am looking forward to the announcement
your first stable release!
