Mac OS X I was able to try out and preview Mac OS X Panther 10.3 for the past few months after WWDC and for the last few days I am running a latest version. So, what to expect from Mac OS X when it comes out on the evening of October 24th? Come in and have a look in this preview article. Update: screenshots removed at request of Apple.

Xnest comes with Panther's X11.
What I do is open two xterms, I ssh into my Unix or Linux box from one of the Mac OS X xterms (e.g. ssh eugenia@10.0.0.12, make sure that SSHd is running on your Linux/unix machine), tell it that the $DISPLAY is the ip address of the mac, for example:
export DISPLAY=10.0.0.13:0.0 (for rootless X server)
export DISPLAY=10.0.0.13:1.0 (for Xnest - in a window)
and then on my *local* MacOSX xterm terminal (not the ssh'ed one) I tell it to:
xhost +
and then:
Xnest :1 -name "Gnome" +kb -ac -geometry 800x600 &
and then on my SSH'ed terminal I tell it to:
gnome-session

And that's it, Gnome will load on Mac OS X. ;)
You can also do "startkde" or "startxfce4" or "wmaker" to load other window managers, instead of "gnome-session".
