Virtual Network Computing

What is VNC? … it looks like a multi-platform light-weight and free version of pcAnywhere, but don't take my word for it …

"VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote display system which allows you to view a computing 'desktop' environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures."
