I was doing some work on one of my new projects in the wee hours of the morning, and I decided to tinker with an old, under-powered tablet we have laying around. Windows 10 doesn’t run well on 1GB of RAM (read “hardly at all”), so I’m going to try various Linux distros to see if I can get any use out of it.
I wanted to remote into it from my laptop to do some clean-up on it first, since dinking around with it using touch is slow and tiresome. Neither Remote Desktop nor Remote Assist was working, and I was about to download Team Viewer on it when I realized, “Oh yeah! I made my own screen sharing app!”
While Team Viewer Quick Support certainly gets the job done just as quickly, there was an unique satisfaction in using my own application for real work. I can’t wait to see it in action when the full InstaTech service goes live!
