Question
I was wondering would you please explain to me: wot is a remote desktop client?

(P.S would you please try to give your answer in a easy way that I can understand)
Thanks

Answer
Cameron,

I'll give it my best shot.

I have a computer at work. It'd be nice if I could, over the internet) remotely control it.

That's what a Remote Desktop Client does, at it's very simplest.

It allows access to a computer somewhere else in your home...or across the internet.

There's some complex setup involved - which is why companies like gotomypc.com exist.

Let me know if you need more info!

I can comfortably answer most basic/advanced questions regarding Macintosh hardware and software - nowadays only OSX. In fact, if it's prior to 10.3, there's a good chance I'll reject your question. Forget OS9 stuff - Igave up OS 9 ten years ago). Please do not ask me about OS9. My particular specialties are in Video editing/DVD authoring. I am a certified trainer in the "pro apps" (Final Cut, DVDSP, Soundtrack, Motion). I have been using Macs since 1985.
