Working from home using a remote desktop has turned out to be surprisingly responsive. There’s little to no lag, and I can still do most things (except use some windows shortcuts).
My current gripe is that Menus take a while to display because of fancy fade-ins and smooth expansion. It all looks nice when you are sitting in front of a PC, but remotely, it just uses more bandwith and wastes time.
So when you start working remotely, save yourself sometime and turn off Window’s lovely effects, and go for a responsive connection: disable the effects.
