    But does it work with Wayland?

      Does anyone know a good tutorial on how to install and configure the server part ?
      I remember I wanted to try it in the past as a better performance alternative to X11VNC, but I failed somehow.

        FreeRDP has excellent Wayland support. The command is called wlfreerdp.

          RDP is (like most things) beyond the scope of Wayland. It is up to all the many (... perhaps one day) individual compositors to write their own duplicated version of an RDP server.

                Does anybody know how this compares to solutions based on vnc concerning latency ?

                  Yep. Along with VNC, a good example of a generic streaming technology. Performance will never be great.

                  In my tests, it does beat VNC considerably. VNC, Pipewire, etc only sends across a raster whereas the Windows GUI system since Windows NT 4.0 TSE (actually Microsoft's WinFrame originally developed by Citrix) has contextual knowledge of many GUI objects (only uses a raster for custom drawing events). It certainly makes the client more complex but it does end up with quite an effective result. This Windows centric tech does well here*.

                  However keep in mind that the GUI system has to be network aware. So you can't just run a Javax.swing, Qt or Gtk program on Windows and expect to benefit. However something like wxWidgets works because it wraps the underlying Win32 toolkit.

                  * of course they are undermining their own system by adding pointless tacky zoomy fade effects for kids.

                    One of the first things I do on a clean Windows install (have been doing for years) is turn off via:

                    Windows Settings -> Ease of Access -> Show animations in Windows (set to on as default)

                    Used to have to do in the Control Panel, but this is exposed here as well. I agree the "zoomy" effects are annoying, actually a visual distraction.
