    Those are the top three that give you the full polished version for a one time fee of less than 20 bucks. I have jump desktop already. It's nearly perfect. My only prob with it is that it is very slow compared to, my now dead to me, Logmein. AKA Logmein is dead because they are removing their free version as of now. They are getting railed on the web lol. Even the peeps that paid $129 for the Ingnition version have to pay or quit now lol. PR disaster. Anyways... Anyone tried the other two?

    I use TeamViewer, which is free for personal use and works with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Ubuntu, iPhone, iPad, etc. It's very secure and quite simple to set up and use (no messing around with ports), which comes in handy if providing remote support to those who aren't very computer literate. You can talk them through the setup on their end and be connected to them in less than a minute. I prefer it over LogMeIn because it includes free file transfers between computers, a feature I use frequently. Also, TeamViewer doesn't affect audio settings on OS X, as many have reported that LogMeIn does.

    Teamviewer was too slow for me. Spalshtop, Logmein, and Remotix are by far and away the fastest. Prob GoToMyPC too but I didn't try it because it has a monthly cost.

    I have moved to Remotix for now. It has everything but easy outside of network setup. Still having trouble with that.
