We're computer people, that's why we're here, right? So we thought about starting a new section dedicated to tools that can make our daily lives easier.
Today we start with remote desktop applications, that is, programs that allow us to access our desktop from any device, including your mobile phone.
We will see some free and other paid solutions created by Microsoft and Apple:
