MS releases Universal RDC Client for Mac 2.0b

updated 02:30 pm EDT, Tue July 31, 2007

Universal Mac RDC Client

Bringing Intel optimization and Remote Desktop Protocol 6.0 support to the product, Microsoft's MacBU has shipped a free beta edition of Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.0. The tool lets you connect to a Microsoft Windows-based computer and work with programs and files on that computer from your Mac. The new release is a Universal Binary, and its support of RDP 6.0 means better compatibility with Windows Vista and improved security features. The new release also has support for multiple sessions, letting users connect to several Windows-based computers at the same time. Other new features include a revised user interface, better customization options, dynamic screen resizing and improved printing support. This beta release expires on March 31, 2008, and is available as a 4MB download.

    It's about time

    What's this, a year since all shipping Apple computers went to an Intel CPU?

    yeah, finally

    shoot, I forgot that in the meantime I got rid of my last remaining Windows machine, so I no longer have any use for RDC.

    Yawn....

    It took them this long to release a BETA?

    I've been using CoRD since I heard of it a month or two ago, and love it. I'll have to take this new MS one for a spin and see how it measures up.
