Another benefit of rdesktop is its ability to screen scale. just use the -g
switch when starting from the command line and you can create a custom sized
window. For example, if my screen resolution is 1024x768, I would run
rdesktop at something like 912x684. This provides a better desktop geometry
than 800x600, yet does not require scrolling as 1024x768 would.
