Hi Joakim,

I think your edit is not suited for the manual... at least as it is. Maybe move it to http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/HowTo/ for now? What do other think?
Read below for my reasons:

This software is not in Debian atm for a reason (mainly because it includes many code copies and thus security support is very hard or does not happen). This should definitly be mentioned when advocating the software.

AFAIK vino is a better alternative, not sure about others.

This should definitly NOT be advocated as such. See http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Lenny/HowTo/Administration#Usingbackports.orgtoinstallnewersoftware for an example how to securely (=with a trust path) add a key.

Simply installing qtnx might be easier and achieve almost the same, or?

+ For mac and windows have a look at: http://www.x2go.org/index.php?id=7

IMO this doesnt belong in the manual neither. (A link to the homepage should be enough, or?)
