I have been knocking around MSRDP a bit over the last few days and as far as I can determine it would be handier and quicker than Splashtop inasmuch as it allows the remote device to function as a touchscreen in the manner that the user might have become accustomed to with the host PC.
However, in my underway environment I get beaten up a good bit and frequently have to scramble out of the way of sausage sailbags being dragged in what I am convinced is a carefully coordinated campaign of harassment and interdiction conducted by the deckforce. Consequently, inadvertent screen taps or swipes often raise hell in the middle of my processes and when I operate Splashtop in the "Trackpad" mode the requirement to use "mouse" buttons has the effect of partially "insulating" me from the effects of unintentional screen bumps or swipes that occur too often in my racing circumstance.
I have not yet discovered any means in MSRDP to operate in a manner similar to Splashtop Trackpad. If / when I do then I might consider the two Remote Desktop systems readily interchangeable in meeting my requirements.
