I'm looking for a 1 button click desktop swap between local computer and a persistent/secure desktop connection to a remote computer. This alt-tab or maximize stuff wont fly...

comment Does a virtual desktop app for Windows exist that is RDP/VNC compatible?
I know how to do full screen RDP or VNC. What I am asking here (as you can see in my question) is whether or not an application exists that can treat a VNC or RDP connection as a "virtual desktop" that is "swappable" by clicking an icon on the taskbar in the same way that Linux can swap virtual desktops in the same X-windows service. Please dont confuse "full screen mode remote desktop" with my question concerning "swappable virtual desktop from the taskbar".

comment how can I share an app using skype?
Skype shares using the same method that MSN Live messenger can share a desktop. You can share desktop as read-only or interactive depending on how you configure it.

comment Sharing a windows desktop with remote desktop?
This only works via MSN Live Chat. You invite someone to chat then from the menu you can make an "Assistance request" and then the user can see your desktop.

comment Super users and the home directory
There is something to be said since Microsoft gets closer to the Unix paradigm. Now, Windows7 puts all users files in a C:\users\Username directory, making it even closer to Unix and the "home" directory idea.

Very helpful post. I'll give an up-point for that. I might not choose as the answer though.

How does this compare to WebEx. It looks similar...
