Sweet Tiger Terminal Server hack

Wesley Felter: On Slashdot, Mike Paquette from Apple revealed the existence of what I'm calling the Tiger Terminal Server hack: (via Hack the Planet)

"In Tiger, Mac OS X 10.4, fast user switching gets a related feature. When a user session is switched off-screen, if a screen watching program such as OSXvnc-server is running, the off-screen session will get a virtual framebuffer so that it can be remote-operated while another user session or a login window is on the hardware console."
