Plashstop is a remote
control program like VNC, a bit modified for performance and to make use of Ipad gestures... big deal.
Yes, this is Windows software but Windows runs perfectly well on Apple Mac hardware
since Apple switched to Intel CPU's and introduced Bootcamp. It's best to run Windows natively for this, not within a virtual machine. I still use Windows XP but Windows 7 is also a good candidate, may be even better.
I advocate MacMini because of it's size but also because of it's dual core
CPU and it has the video system (NVidea) that is required by the TimeZero software. The new MacMini's are very small but have their AC power supply built in. If you don't want to use an inverter
and are a bit handy, there are good instructions on how to convert them to 12V DC (Google is your friend). They are very power efficient too.
The Mac's run Windows XP very well too, which is something most other hardware
vendors don't support anymore. You can make multi-boot to get both Windows and MacOS but you can also decide to have a Windows-only setup just like with any other PC (I actually tested that to confirm it).
The big deal with this remote desktop
program is that it has those iPad gestures supported plus that it's performance really makes it work with these full navigation
programs. This did not work well enough before.
