Windows 7: Connect Win 7 with XPSP3 VistaSP2 via Remote Desktop...

Connect Win 7 with XPSP3 VistaSP2 via Remote Desktop...

Microsoft is gearing up to release a tool that will permit users of Windows Vista and Windows XP computers to connect to Windows 7 machines, and to take advantage of features that only the latest version of the Windows client brings to the table. Bridging Vista and XP with Windows 7 will be possible through the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) 7.0 client.

The Redmond-based company has been cooking the client for some time now, and it appears that the baking time is almost over. There’s still no definitive delivery deadline, but with Windows 7 general availability now almost a month away, Remote Desktop Connection 7.0 GA is bound to follow.
