Microsoft: Universal Binary Remote Desktop Connection On the Way

| News

Microsoftis Remote Desktop Connection client has been a mainstay tool for Mac users that need to access Windows PCs from their computer, but performance on Intel-based Macs isnit all that great since the application was written for Appleis older PowerPC-based machines. Thatis about to change because Microsoft is preparing to release a Universal Binary version of RDC the last week of July.

The current version of RDC, version 1.0.3, will run on Intel-based Macs, but along with poor performance, it canit print documents from Windows applications to Mac printers -- a feature that does work on PowerPC-based Macs. It does, however, support accessing Windows desktops, copy and paste, and running Windows applications remotely from Appleis latest Macs.

Remote Desktop Connection is free, and available for download at the Microsoft Web site. Microsoft is tracking the status of the pending beta release on the Mac Mojo blog.
