    Hey there, just a quick question.
    What about RDC (Remote Desktop Connection)? Does anyone use it anymore? Is it any good nowadays, despite the fact that it is one of the few solutions for the pre-intel Macs? Can you game on it?
    Thanks. :)

    Nothing that requires any sort of close to real-time reaction speed. Solitaire perhaps, Doom no way.

    What about more simple games... Like... I dunno, maybe Maple Story?

    I've no idea what that is but if you need to react fast then it's not going to be satisfactory. No matter what game there will be a vastly increased latency from the RDC connection. Even a 0.1s added latency will make most games unplayable.

    I use RDC pretty much all day every day but not for gaming or anything that needs graphics/sound. RDC is for connecting to servers to fix stuff and it does that very well. Anything is is probably not recommended.
