RDP and rdesktop on *nix seems to work *much* better than winVNC for the
clients I support that have XP clients.

With nothing at all to back it up, I believe it works much faster and
smoother, especially over vpn.

Not to mention that (iirc) you can set it up with a group policy from
the server instead of having to install and maintain a separate
application on each client.

At least check it out if you haven't already.
