Microsoft RDC 2.0 Beta

Microsoft has finally updated their Remote Desktop Client to be more of an OS X app and less of a shell around a protocol. It is now a Universal Binary, supports newer versions of the protocol, allows single sessions with one app installation, screen resizing and better support for printing to Mac-connected printers.

The download can be fetched here.

I haven't tried it yet, but they have also released a plug-in to better support Open Office documents in Word here.

a) It's actually a separate program, not a plugin.

b) It converts the XML versions of Microsoft Office documents, not OpenOffice documents. MS calls their format "Office Open XML", so the confusion is understandable (and possibly intentional on MS's part).
