I tried NX. It doesn't cost anything with the freenx server, because
the NX client is free.
But I had a problem connecting to the same server from different machines.
Which was sorta the whole point for me. I think (from memory) that
the NX protocol insisted that the server and client had the same bitdepth
(no. of colours) which wasn't the case for the two machines I tried.
Otherwise, yeah, it is quite fast.
