    Happy April Fool's! Yup, some of you all guessed it: Mac OS X wasn't real. A VNC client, though, definitely was! Check out the video below for more, or have a look at the source code!

    very cool! Hopefully the graphical encoding problems can be solved, as well as potentially a switch port.

    Suggestions
    1 put a homescreen to type IP Andress And password

    2 a RDP client, It can makes the wiiu as a thin client of a windows Pc seccond Session, without use the main user logged on your pc

    3 an LTSP client (the same as point 2, but to Linux And Mac)

    Homescreen's possible; for now, IP address/password are set using a config file on SD.

    RDP/LTSP would take much more work; we basically ported an existing VNC engine. Adding RDP/LTSP support would require finding SDL-compatible engines for each, porting each, then integrating each.
