What is the best way for naive users
to run remote X apps on a windows box?
Installation: has got to be download-the-exe-and-just-say-yes.
Use: ssh to Linux box and arrive with DISPLAY set. (or VNC in)
Bonus points: Good cut-n-paste, and windows explorer like SCP support.
My impressions so far:
Terminal has limited cut-n-paste.
Scripts to start X enabled terminal seemed flakey.
X will happily start twice and then not work.
No drag and drop SCP window.
Couldn't get the install down to just-say-yes
Xwin32? Costs $132, is it worth the money?
VNC? Sounds good, worth experimenting.
Other? Got any other suggestions?
