    Remote Access to MacOS
    I am thinking about picking up a Mac Mini for iPhone development. I am a Windows user, but I would like to be able to access the computer without having to put a monitor/kb & mouse on to it. What is the best way to remote into Mac OS?

    Is OSXVnc the best option?

    OSX has a VNC server built in, so really it's down to your preference of Windows client.

    I tried TightVNC/RealVNC against the "ScreenSharing" option. It is really slow on a local 1gbit connection. TightVNC is unusable, RealVNC is very flaky but partially usable, but still slow.

    Is there anything that can give near native performance similar to RDP? Is LogMeIn the best option?
