I had Remote Desktop Connection, but since upgrading to Snow Leopard, for some reason it doesn’t work now. I’ve even uninstalled it and tried to re-install it and it fails on installs. Would appreciate any feedback on anyone else who had this experience as well, thanks.

The list is a good one, but I think there are better options for free solutions in the remote desktop software category. I would encourage people to check out some free demos before they settle on any given solution, because there are any quality solutions out there.
