A few days ago, I wrote about Comcast/Xfinity doesn’t support Linux for streaming television over a computer. I ran into another Linux snag where a remote control service wouldn’t let my Linux computer control one of my client’s computers. GoToMyPC.com doesn’t support Linux as host computers and they say you must use a Windows or Mac computer for remote control.  I had to log in from a Windows 7 computer to complete my GoToMyPC session with my client and work on their computer. This cost time

Another remote control product I use is Teamviewer and they support Linux computers as hosts and remote computers which makes it better for me because I can connect to my computer repair clients from any of my computers – not just my Windows ones. 

So come on GoToMyPC! Add Linux support for computer professionals like me who prefer Linux over the virus-magnet, Microsoft Windows.
