I haved tried out some of the remote control options and to me VNC feels old and slow. Is there any chance Ubuntu will work with NX Server and bundle FreeNX and completely remove VNC as a core product.
Because it installs standard it gives the suggestion of being a relevant product but as most people replace it, I don't think it merits inclusion in the base install. Unless it's predetermined that Android will be replacing Gnome and Unity, fixing this remote tools issue seems like time well spent. Increases usability and exstends the OS family.
