From my point of view, when using VNC have gave me a much easier life when working on them as it simply allows me to use shared screen and connect to different OS with ease, comparing VNC and RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) it offers the flexibility. It is a backup remote desktop software of  of Microsoft, when one machine having trouble with RDP.
