Tomsk Inc.
During the pandemic, our company worked remotely. Various staff in our company had technical difficulties or needed assistance installing software in order to work. DeskRoll Remote Desktop helped us to make this process seamless. Rather than deal with the aggravation of trying to walk someone through something over the phone, we were able to get things established in a simple, easy way.

If you just want to connect to the server and do work (like Linux server-workstation type), NoMachine Enterprise Desktop is great, except for the keyboard mapping issue, which you have to correct in a setup of the remote server (almost) every time you log on. The graphics are smooth and fast. Overall response speed is very good, too. I like it.

I haven't consulted with customer support, so I don't have an opinion. However, from the usefulness of the product, I think the support is also good

Again, the NoMachine is a real virtual terminal, and you don't need to install another Linux on your machine to fully exploit the X-terminal function. This makes the disk and memory usage of the client minimum. No issue on the screen. It is really good.
