"VNC is the dream of the network administrator come true. We could say it's a remote display system, but it's much more than that. Visiting http://www.uk.research.att.com allows you to get this great piece of software for FREE. VNC is distributed under GPL and it's available for a lot of platforms. Obviously you can contribute and many ports on different OSes have been done by contributors. Let's try to discover the many features of VNC."

"At the beginning of 1999 AT&T acquired the Olivetti Research Laboratory and carried on with the work on VNC."

"As explained on AT&T web-site, the name VNC comes from the original development of very-thin-client ATM network computers and "because the VNC viewer is a software-only version of this ATM Network Computer, and so provides workstations which can be created or deleted at will, we named the system Virtual Network Computing."
