MultiHeaded Mac

I just discovered by accident that when you are operating your Mac via VNC, and someone sits down at the console and Fast User Switches to their account… your VNC account still controls your original desktop. So, minus VNC latency (which isn’t too horrible if you are on a LAN) you can have multiple people running full screen Aqua Mac goodness, one on console, and the rest essentially on dumb terminals, but with their full desktops and access to everything. Right now I am sitting in the livingroom on a laptop VNC’d to my Mac while Amy is actually sitting in front of it… apperantly doing some sort of Algebra related game.

Very nice. A good discovery.
