NoMachine articles

On the forums, I recently recommended someone use x2go, which is an open NoMachine server/client. Karol brought up the fact that these are currently in the Networking category and whether they would be appropriate in this VNC section. From a user's perspective, the NoMachine implementations provide an identical experience to that of traditional VNC usage, so it would seem as though they would fit here.

But I proposed that maybe it would make more sense to go ahead and group the NoMachine stuff with the VNC stuff, but give it a more generic name that would accurately cover both. Then maybe the VNC category would link to this more generic section? Karol seems to be under the impression that redirecting categories is either not allowed or not supported, but I cannot comment, as I have never tried to do more than some small edits to pages of interest.

In any case, having the NoMachine stuff directly in the Networking category seems like the wrong place for it, and should be moved. If nothing else, maybe a new NoMachine category would be better than where these articles are now? -- WonderWoofy (talk) 21:05, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Karol is right, redirects don't work with categories, however this category has only 4 articles and recategorizing them would be done in 4 seconds ;) (I could even do it with my bot, if needed). I support this, what if we create Category:Remote Desktop? -- Kynikos (talk) 02:00, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for the late response, I forgot to subscribe to this. I think that it would be a great idea to have a Category:Remote Desktop. My contributions to the wiki have been fairly small so far, and I have never moved a page or anything, so I am not sure how that works. Maybe it would be best if you took care of it. Thanks! --WonderWoofy (talk) 00:52, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
No worries, it's all done now, closing. -- Kynikos (talk) 07:55, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
