RealVNC is better in a number of important respects:

1. It works on more architectures
2. It is built against a current XFree86 source tree and so is more
   maintainable
3. It provides vnc.so, for exporting a running display efficiently

While RealVNC lacks some of the encodings that TightVNC has, it also
provides ZRLE and colour peeling, which IMHO make up for that.
