There are a number of tools within Windows XP that are somewhat under-utilised. One of them is Remote Desktop Connection, which enables you to connect to a remote PC and both control and manage that PC. If you have a very fast broadband connection, you might find you're able to connect and work on that remote machine. Ideal if you're situated outside of the office and forgot to bring some work documents with you.
Remote Desktop Connection 6 is the latest release from Microsoft and designed for Windows XP SP 2 users (as it ships with Vista as standard). For the average user, the new features include support for a 32-bit desktop (and you'll need a very fast connection to handle this or simply a local network) and font smoothing on the remote computer.
