Ask Slashdot: Easy, Open Source Desktop-Sharing Software?

ftldelay (116 comments)

For helping friends/family, I like Both of you go there and download/run an EXE. Once it launches, they click to generate a code that they give to you and you connect using it. It's VNC-based and nothing to install.

MS Won't Release Study Disputing Munich's Linux-Switch Savings

ftldelay Re:What did you expect? (268 comments)
