lol internet.

the internet makes you stupid

What software is everyone using to access OSX desktop remotely?

VNC? Royal TSX? is Apple Remote Desktop overkill? How is Apple Remote Desktop really any different from VNC?

I am asking because I want to remote into my apple computer from home to do some work sometimes. Looking for a good solution. I find VNC weird with resolution sometimes depending where you're connecting from. (ie. connecting from my 2k monitor at home to a 4k retina generally isn't the greatest experience.)

I'm out of my head
of my heart
and my mind



Disclaimer: Please run whatever remote solution you choose by your IT guys first. Unvetted remote access is generally never a great idea and could get you in some hot water depending on your industry.

Does your company offer VPN access? If so the easiest thing is just VPN and Remote Desktop, but admittedly you mentioned this was subpar for you. I've had good luck with MFA-enabled TeamViewer

ARD is basically VNC with extra security stuff bolted on top. That being said, I'd recommend ARD for incoming over-the-internet connectivity over vanilla VNC.

Anyone use Atom for text editing? If so, worthy replacement for Sublime Text?

It's slow and a battery hog. What do you need that Sublime doesn't give you?

A lot more customizable and hackable. All open-source.

If you're considering moving from Sublime to something else, just use VS Code. Code is light-years faster than Atom, and the community support is there. I moved from ST because, for what I do, VS Code included a lot of functionality out of the box that I otherwise had to install as plugins.

Performance-wise, ST and Code feel very similar, though Code will fall over if you try to open very large text files with it. It's an issue with all Electron apps, but it happens rarely enough that it's almost never worth worrying about. When it is an issue, you can open the file in ST instead

VSCode is the one where it can auto-recognize code from a mile away?

TextWrangler/BBedit
Coda
TextMate
vim/MacVim
Emacs
Komodo
jEdit
UltraEdit
Brackets
Atom
VS Code
Eclipse
Xcode
IntelliJ
