33 Remote Desktop Connection
Another feature only available to Windows Vista Business and Ultimate users is Remote Desktop Connection, shown in Figure 3.36. Just like in Windows XP Professional, Remote Desktop Connection allows you to connect to other PCs on your network or over the Internet.
Figure 3.36 Remote Desktop Connection.
Remote Desktop Connection takes network sharing to another level. Rather than just being able to view and use files from other computers, Remote Desktop Connection allows you to view a remote computer's desktop just as if you were sitting in front of the computer. Therefore, you could use applications in addition to files and documents.
For example, you could periodically work from a laptop in your home or office, but use applications and files from your desktop PC.
