An anonymous reader writes: The Splashtop remote desktop application software has been ported to Ubuntu Linux. In the port that was announced today, the company claims Splashtop is 10~15% faster than VNC, the commonly used graphical desktop sharing system. The superior performance is attributed to "an efficient protocol, algorithms and optimizations." While non-free proprietary software, the Linux Foundation is also promoting Splashtop coming to Linux.
