[box type=”info” style=”rounded” icon=”info”]This is my own personal experience after testing the Desktop Sharing option using VNC viewer. NoMachine I must be frank is one of the best RDP tool for Linux I have seen so far and this is based on the fact that it does not lag while dragging items on the desktop. I don’t know what your own experience is and what you feel about NoMachine but feel free to share your experience[/box]
