Licensing issues with Microsoft.

I only meant license wise, not functionality wise..
VNC works fine with XP ( though I've not tested 2003 yet ), but if you
interpret the license agreement to the letter, its not legal..
As a side note, for t house of you with Unix, Desktop works with the
'remote desktop' component of XP.. again not legal, but it DOES function...
Remote desktop blanks out the 'console' on XP.. thus the 'issue' you
speak of.. So its not a true 'restriction' but a 'feature' that has to be
considered when you use either method..
