Macs Control Windows -- Last week Farallon announced Timbuktu Pro for Windows, a program that enables collaboration between Windows and Macintosh users over local networks or over the Internet. Timbuktu Pro for Macintosh has been out for over a year now, and has proven especially popular among folks who run Macintosh-based Internet servers since it enables them to control the servers over the Internet. Mixed platform sites might do well to take a look at Timbuktu Pro for Windows and see how well it integrates with Macs and various different types of connections. [ACE]
