What is RDC

RDC is a Remote Desktop Protocol Client for Linux. It is designed as a fast and small client. Currently it supports only a basic set of RDP features, but this features are well implemented and fast.

Why a new RDP Client

The existing RDP Clients for GNU/Linux all directly use X. This causes a lot of work and makes the source code and therefore the program complex. RDC is a Gtk+ based client which uses the advantages of the framework. But it is still fast, because codecs are low-level implemented.
