Freebee Friday: Windows 8, Here We Come

Mac-Win8-STRThe actual software is still nearly three months away, but software rewritten to take advantage of Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8 release and its touch-centric Metro interface are starting to roll in. Splashtop’s Remote Desktop is among the first and a preview of it is available online as a freebee. With the help of Splashtop’s Streamer app, the program lets a remote computer connect via the Internet to a host device and run just about any app, making it a great way to get a classroom computer ready for the next day’s lessons. It works with either a Mac or Windows computer at the host end and a variety of devices, including iPads and Android tablets, at the remote end.
