A Pocket PC enthusiast in Austria installed a VNC client on his PowerBook at home and his Loox 720 VGA Pocket PC and can now run his Mac OS X computer from anywhere in the world.  I don’t know how fast this is but it sure looks cool to see OS X running in landscape on a Pocket PC.

  1. Yea, I’ve done this same thing with Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 and VNC with my OQO.

    Works well and I can access my linux apps on the road. I setup tightVNC as a xinetd daemon, in essense converting one of my Linux workstations into a multi-user terminal server.

    Actually, remote connectivity has never been better. Everybody has broadband these days. I can access my WinXP and my Linux workstations from the road and I pay $65.00 for DSL with static IP’s and a 3MB connection.

    Hell, five years ago this was unheard of.

  2. That’s cool, Bill. Throw in EVDO or EDGE into the mix and your connectivity will be everywhere, even without a WiFi hotspot.
