Subject: Microsoft plans tighter security measures in Windows XP SP2 

 Maybe in SP2 they can revise their EULA to be a little more user friendly
(Fat Chance!)

Nice comparison.

My Windows XP Professional EULA (which I never assented to because it was
installed on machine when I got it and only my cat ever hit the OK button.
Sue him). It seems to indicate there is no problem with VNC as long as only
one user at a time is accessing the machine remotely. For a workstation that
is a reasonable restriction.

2. DESCRIPTION OF OTHER RIGHTS AND
LIMITATIONS.
* NetMeeting/Remote Assistance/Remote Desktop Features.  The SOFTWARE
contains Remote Desktop, Remote Assistance, and NetMeeting technologies that
enable the Product or applications installed on the COMPUTER (sometimes
referred to as a host device) to be accessed remotely from other Devices.
You may use the SOFTWARE's Remote Desktop feature (or other software which
provides similar functionality for a similar
purpose) to permit any Device to use, access, display or run the SOFTWARE
without acquiring a license for the SOFTWARE on that Device, provided only
one user uses, accesses, displays, or runs the SOFTWARE at any one time.
When you are using Remote Assistance or NetMeeting (or other software which
provides similar functionality for a similar purpose) you may share your
