I like ChromeRemoteDesktop as well, but it does pose a few problems:
- It's pared directly with a Google Account. Not bad if you're using it
for personal stuff, but annoying to work around in a business setting
- I think UAC prompts aren't caught by the listening server
- At least for linux hosts, it spins up a separate virtual desktop for
your use. Nice to connect and disconnect for always-remote use, but
annoying if you want to view the desktop you had locally on the machine.
It still works really well, just a few annoying parts to work around.
