Please don't take offense from my question.
A few months ago I installed Ubuntu on my MacBook and was very happy indeed. Best laptop I've ever used and the OS was able to use the mouse pad properly. If you have a MacBook you know how truly wonderful the mouse pad is.
I make my living supporting folks using Windows based computers. I love my MacBook so I use it almost exclusively and just Remote Desktop into Windows servers all day long...
rdesktop for Linux has been around for a long time (from what I could gather) and is the guts of a number of GUI wrappers. I tried using it directly (or within one of the wrappers) and had the same experience over and over: After as little as a few minutes or as much as half an hour of use, it would lock up or stop tracking the mouse properly etc.
Unfortunately this was a deal breaker and I ended up reinstalling OS X on my MacBook.
So, as the question asks, does anyone have first hand experience using rdesktop for Linux and is it stable etc?
