Title says it all. I know latency and network-hops are a factor, yet hard to shop for.
I want to run VNC or NX or RemoteDesktop or whatever, and interact with a machine sitting in my office, doing 2-D office apps and web apps type stuff, no crazy 3D animation or movies. Ballpark, estimate, what home Internet connection do I need, to replicate the experience of making the same connection from, say, a machine on the same LAN?
1Mbps? 7Mbps? 12 Mbps?
Does DSL vs Cable matter, on the latency front? Is the choice of application (VNC or NX or RemoteDesktop) a major factor?
