CoRD was a port of rdesktop from linux originally. But now, it’s become a full featured (or will soon be) Microsoft Remote Desktop client for MacOSX. What’s interesting about CoRD is that there are some really simple features that are already implemented in the current 0.3 version such as:

  • Saving of servers, with passwords stored in keychain
  • Interoperability with Microsoft’s client (saving and opening of RDC files)
  • Tab-style view of open connections, with optional thumbnail previews
  • A failed connection doesn’t freeze up CoRD

And there’s more to come in later versions such as Vista compatibility, and domain control as well as multiple terminal views. It’s open source and one of the best remote desktop clients there is out there currently for MacOSX.
