I found it unbearably slow compared to the system's built-in VNC/ARD server.

I'd love to test this software out, but the download server is slower than molasses. Hopefully the developer can add an alternate means of downloading.

The load is a little (er, a lot) heavier than normal today. However, I just had a buddy on the other side of the world test and he downloaded in 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Molasses, on the other hand, comes in at 10 minutes and 25 seconds. We're still a ways ahead of it!

Dear Bosco's Screen Share Users,

We promised to have 1.0 done on October 7. We've slipped again unfortunately. There were some things with the user interface that were confusing for many users, and we've done some redesigning of the product to make it really, really easy to use -- "just like a phone".

We will have a new beta out in the next few days. We really think you're gonna like it. We appreciate your patience. And... we're extending our beta discount.

Bosco's Screen Share is built from the ground up to be easy enough for your grandmother to use. One thing that motivated us to build Bosco's Screen Share was trying to use VNC products to help my 81-year old grandmother with her computer. They were a complete non-starter. We think software should be easy to use.

Be sure to read the known issues on the support page of the Bosco's Screen Share website. One that slipped by that we just discovered... If you are outside the US/UK and format your decimal numbers like "0,1234", you won't be able to remote control the mouse from your computer. Set the number format to "0.1234" in your system preferences or control panels to make this work. We have it fixed for a 1.0b5 release, which we will probably make in the next few days. Anyway, please check the "known issues" on the support page.

The next beta will have remote control. We now have it working pretty well for Mac OS X controlling Mac OS X and Windows systems. It works "acceptably well" for Windows controlling Mac OS X and Windows systems. Mac OS Classic remote control (being controller or controllee) isn't working yet.

Expect a new beta by 30-August. Our ship date will probably slip to 15-September. More news soon...
