I don't want the Beta! I want the working stable version!

Microsoft Remote Desktop for Mac 2.0 Beta is out. But now I can't find the non-beta version that I know works. Where can I find it?

I hate when they do this - release a Beta and remove the stable version.

I just recommended it to someone and got a "you're a life saver". I told them I'd send them either a link or the .dmg file.

But all I can find at the moment is the Beta, which may or may not work.

Any ideas?

That link is right off the downloads page. Did you spend any time looking around?

In my experience the microsoft client v1 is pretty flaky too. I use cord, and although it's not perfect it's better.

thanks for the suggestion for Cord, been looking for something better than Microsoft's official client.

The 2.0 beta is a million times more stable than the 1.03 version on all my macs. The old version randomly crashes all the time and I haven't had a single issue with the beta since it came out. I used to be a CoRD user until the beta came out. It beats them all.

I'll second the Cord suggestion, particularly if you ever need to connect to more than one machine.

I used 1.03 of the Microsoft client for a long time, but since Microsoft brought out the 2.0 beta and Cord brought out its latest release, Cord has been my go-to client.

I've been using 1.03 for at least the past year and have never had it crash. And I use it all the time to do random tasks on an otherwise monitor-less XP machine.

Seconding Matt's experience -- the 2.0 beta is actually far more stable, reliable, and capable than the "known good" earlier release.
