I think that Ubuntu should implement a remote desktop application which can be used over networks as slow as dial-up internet connections.
This application should be reliable and easy to use.
Many are the uses for a remote desktop and include helping family, friends and co-workers, providing commercial technical support and helping out users in IRC.
Vino and Vinagre are included in the default desktop installation but Vinagre is unable to reduce the image quality as a trade-off to increase speed. This is reported as https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/203782
. This makes it unusable even for broadband users because it requires too much upload bandwidth.
VNC clients other than Vinagre can't connect to Vino. This is reported as https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/369181
. UPDATE: This isn't true. VNC clients CAN connect to Vino.
