Can MAC use Winodws Remote Desktop?

Hello Experts, I am not a MAC expert.  Can I use a MAC to remote desktop into a Windows PC or Server and will it work well.  I don't want to tell a client yes unless it is flawless because the client will try some odd thing and then complain I misled them.....

Thanks for the info

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Absolutely - I use it all the time to connect to Servers and Workstations happily.

Just make sure you / they download the Microsoft Remote Desktop App first.

Works like a dream :)
