I just installed cygwin
for Windows. It had been a while since I had used it, but with absolutely no configuration, I had X-windows up and running, with full capability of running forwarded applications. So, I now have even further proof that my employer wastes millions of dollars on expensive, substandard software, like Exceed
(currently running at $245 per machine license, according to their website). I am running a fully-functional X-desktop, in Microsoft Windows. I have full use of ssh, sshd, and whatever graphical applications I have on either of my other two X-window capable machines. I see it more and more, that free software is putting commercial software sellers in the dust, and corporations don't even know what they're missing.
