    Same uncomplicated and simply working remote desktop application as one day was TeamViewer. And at best: Newer versions can connect to older versions - which TeamViewer always enforced to enforce everybody to upgrade.

    AnyDesk is a great alternative to Team Viewer. It works better and costs less (I'm a paying AnyDesk user). I use it extensively to help friends and family.

    It's the best alternative but lacks many of the features found in TeamViewer. If you're on a budget though, this will do in a pinch!

    It has too much options for an incompetent user to setup. Also, it does not tell the external IP address of the user, so I cannot connect.

    TightVNC requires server configuration and port forwarding. Too complicated for the average remote client who uses Team Viewer for remote support.

    For users who know what they are doing TightVNC is a great way to control systems remotely.

    Remmina is a great RDP or VNC client. These are already listed as remote desktop technologies. Let's be clear the main advantage of TeamViewer (and LogMeIn) is that the remote computer only needs an Internet connection. No port forwarding required.

    Easy to use, install NoMachine on both computers. Connect to another computer via internet with external IP or services like dyndns, just need port forwarding. Very stable and many features.

    It works just the same as TeamViewer, but the download is only 1.5 megs - and it's not $800 - it's totally free.

    Like TeamViewer but no features except for chat and file transfer via chat window. If only remote control needed then this will be just fine. Does the basic job very well.

    Really awesome for Linux users to remotely connect to their computers through a secure connection. Allows for transmission of audio from the client, and works really well even with slow connections. To summarize: secure by default (because using ssh), good even in low latency, good for presentations, and best alternative to RDP for linux users.
