Microsoft SharedView: Enabling Virtual Pairing

Recently, in my attempts to learn Test Driven Development (TDD) I have found it necessary to pair with other more experienced programmers who can help me along in my journey to AltDotNet mastery.  One tool that has really helped with this has been Microsoft SharedView.  Microsoft SharedView is a desktop sharing application that allows up to 15 people to collaborate.  Any of the 15 people can control the shared desktop, which is critical to making pairing a reality.

Microsoft SharedView is offered as a free download and utilized your  Windows Live™ ID create and share sessions.  I have really enjoyed the collaborative experience it has brought to these remote coding sessions.

I have also evaluated other offering such as RemoteX for Skype, but have found that when things go wrong we always fall back to SharedView.

I'd love to hear from others that have done virtual pairing and hear what you have used and how well it worked.
