I use Xorg & XFCE4 on my FreeBSD desktop(s). For remote desktop
FreeBSD -> FreeBSD: ssh with X11 forwarding (-X or -Y options, see manpage).
FreeBSD -> Windows: rdesktop (/usr/ports/net/rdesktop). Works
beautifully for work. Can't recall which, but some games don't seem to
Windows -> FreeBSD: freeXer and PuTTY with X11 forwarding enabled.
Kind of interesting to have my FreeBSD desktop apps on my wife's lappy
at the breakfast table ;-). With this setup, Windows actually is the
"window manager" --- kinda disconcerting at first glance :-D
Condense soup, not books!
