AnyDesk in competition with TeamViewer


AnyDesk is certainly currently suitable for brief repair sessions. Unlike TeamViewer, noticeable input delays rarely occur. One particular highlight is the option to operate AnyDesk via terminal [5]. However, the errors mentioned above currently make group work or work over longer periods difficult on another computer in the local network – at least in the Linux version.

AnyDesk therefore has a technically good foundation. However, the developers still need to make some improvements in the Linux version to make it serious competition for TeamViewer. These improvements might take some time because of the complexity of the application, but I'll definitely take another look at AnyDesk later in the year.
