Remote Desktop with Surface

So I got a Surface to complement my powerful, but bulky laptop. So far I have loved my Surface and I wanted to share my trick to get around the limitations in Windows RT.

Remote desktop has been a great experience. I am remoting into a full Windows 8 machine and it seems to notice I am connecting with a device that has a touch screen. The touch controls work beautifully. I have been able to watch video through remote desktop on my WiFi network. I have also used it to run x86 apps.I was disappointed to see that some of the best Microsoft games are x86 only such as solitaire, mah jong, and minesweeper. With Remote desktop these are all playable on Surface. Is anyone else doing this and are there any other cool uses for Remote Desktop?
