182 votes were submitted, and the clear winner was...Microsoft's Remote Desktop
said by Microsoft :Remote Desktop is included with Windows XP, and provides a free, easy to use solution for accessing your computer over a network.
In 2nd place was UltraVNC.
UltraVNC is based off of RealVNC which was developed by AT&T Labs (which also was a contender in the poll) UltraVNC adds lots of new features that make it stand out from all the other VNC variants.
Here are just a sampling of its features:
Another VNC variant, it's known best for its Tight encoding method. The Tight encoding method is very efficient and also speeds up polling times (UltraVNC also has Tight encoding capabilities)
Logmein stands out because it is accessible from any web browser, and can go through firewalls. It is the easiest to setup, and is very simple to use. Another thing to mention is that it is FREE, but does not support file transfers (except in the higher tiers) It is also encrypted, which makes it much safer to use over the internet than, some of the other unencrypted VNC varients.
