RDP on Steroids

My favorite customer quote of the week: 

"DameWare is RDP on steroids."

A conversation with a new remote support user yielded this gem as the three-person IT team leader described how he could do more faster with DameWare than he ever could with Windows RDP alone. Other quotes I found myself jotting down: 

  • "It's like RDP but you can work with another user at the same time on the same screen, and it includes a little chat client so you don't have to share notepad or something lame like that." 
  • "You don't need to build DameWare in your standard images to use it because it installs its local client when you connect."
  • "DameWare cleans up nicely too.  It automatically uninstalls the client it installed when you close up the session."


Your Thoughts?

How would you would answer this?  "DameWare is..."

I have used Dameware at least 10 years.  It is greatly superior to RDP.
