Response to CNET review of VNC

I want to state up front that I use VNC and Pc AnyWhere everyday to do my job. I prefer VNC to PcAnyWhere because of its simplicity and stability. I am NOT responding to this review because it does not recommend VNC. I can think of many situations where VNC is not the tool to use and another remote control software should be used instead. I am responding to the review because it contains a lot of incorrect information. I think, for instance, that CNN did a very good job of reviewing VNC even though VNC placed last in that particular review.
