Bye bye, Remote Desktop Client

Having to manage a bunch of Windows boxes made me download and install Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Client almost as soon as I switched back to using Mac last summer. First I used the current version but as soon as the beta of the Remote Desktop Client v2.0 came out I started using that. A couple of weeks ago I started getting this notification:

Remote Desktop Client - Out of date

However, there is no file to download. Apparently, the application timed out on March 31st but we have yet to learn from Microsoft when the proper version is due.

CoRD to the rescue. CoRD is a SourceForge hosted project to create a free remote desktop client for Mac – and it rocks.

Unless Microsoft comes up with some extremely useful features in their client, I won’t be switching back to RDC.
