Web-based VNC access

I welcome the availability of an ActiveX control for two reasons: (1) The
reality is that Java is becoming less accessible due to the fact that
Microsoft has decided to remove it from its browser. Installation of a JVM
is less than transparent to the average end-user. (2) Microsoft's JVM far
outperforms Sun's JVM due to the fact that it does JIT byte-code compilation
into a Windows native executable form, whereas Sun's JVM is completely
interpreted. This translates into a much slower VNC response than is the
case for MS JVM or an ActiveX control.

My $0.02 worth...

Stephan.

> ActiveX?  That means it can only be displayed on IE and only on Windows
platforms.  Sorry to tell you, this is a regression and opposite the idea of
VNC which is multi-platform and multi-environment.
