The thing I like about the windows vnc viewer is that it does fullscreen
and (this is important) allows you to easily swap back to your native
desktop using a keypress (ctrl-esc).
TightVNC has a fullscreen mode and it works under KDE3.1 but I couldn't
figure out how to swap back to windowed mode once fullscreen mode was
Anyway in X since you can run X apps remotely and most modern wm's allow
multiple desktop then vnc is kind of redundant for X to X.
(1) whoops... the keypress is F8 ... just found out why I missed that,
it's "man xtightvncviewer" not "man tightvnc" and on my Mandrake 9.1 man
-k was broken at the time, something to do with the installer thinking I
was in Korea.
