I prefer RealVNC to TightVNC.


I have been told that TightVNC is supposed to be more stable and faster 
then RealVNC, but my experience has shown the opposite.  It may be some 
poor configuration I did with TightVNC, but none the less RealVNC has 
never let me down.

If you have the option, I would recommend Windows Remote Desktop over 
RealVNC and TightVNC, as it performs much better, plus it has some sort 
of encrypted stream, where RealVNC (free) does not.
