i never thought id be able to remotely control my xp notebook with linux but i can i can listen to music, chat, open office 2002, use icq, surf the net, i can basicly use windows programs and use linux at the same time like running 2 os's best of both worlds,windows for netowrking music, and movies, linux for serving and creating ftps,like taking the good for both and mixing, the bad only being that when remotly connecting to my xp notebook you get 16 bit colour but you dont need it if your only grabbing music and using msn to send files or to setup batch files for cleanin it up for hosting,
