There are many remote control programs out nowadays. There is GoToMyPC, TeamViewer, Logmein, and the list goes on. One of my all time favorites though is VNC. Not because it is the flashiest or the quickest, but because it is the most flexible. It seems as though there is a version for pretty much any platform.
As good as VNC is, it looks like it is about to get even better. VNC has teamed up with Intel to put VNC in to the BIOS. While this might not sound that exciting, it is very cool. It opens up a number of new abilities such as being able to install an OS on the remote system. In the past VNC was an application that ran on top of an OS so something like this wasn’t possible. Check out the video below to see a demo of this. I think one of the coolest things in the demo is when they disabled the network adapters and the remote session stayed up. That’s right, it works even if a TCP/IP stack isn’t loaded.
