If you have never used the share option before, it allows two people to
"share" a screen session; both people may type in the same session at the
same time and have the same privs as shell in the given session. You are
able to specify what users may attach to a shared screen session, and you
must start it as a shared session for others to attach, but it can be
quite excellent. (It also allows you to have multiple screen sessions
opened and attached without detatching.)

That is SO phracking cool. So, in essence, two people can play Infocom,
Scott Adams, Adventure, nethack, or any other text based game together.
And using the shared option to vncviewer (both people connecting have to specify it I believe), you can both play solitaire together :-).

I use VNC's share option when trying to illustrate something intensely graphical.. like using GIMP, or even using SQLManager under windows. Things that require a rapid refresh rate don't work very well, and the bandwidth requirements are a lot higher, but it's also a useful tool to "show me" what you're doing.
