I use the MI/X X server at work when I'm forced to use win95 to be
compatible with everyone else. I can't use XV with that--I just get an
empty window. Some stuff works, some doesn't. But what the X server I have
running all the time (MI/X) gives me is a window onto a stable linux box,
which I use to check email, do unix stuff, ftp, etc. I'd rather have an
xterm session on the MI/X than the awful telnet client bundled with win95.

So to get that same functionality only better I'd be very interested.
Only if it were free though--Exceed was cool but cost $$$. I never heard of
the other one recently mentioned with the 2 hour time limit.
