X11, Window Managers The new X Server developed under the sponsorship of freedesktop.org is aiming at replacing XFree86. Some code will be re-used but the core will be rewritten by Keith Packard and others. The new X server features full support for transparency, and has window-level image compositing among other things. Check out the screenshots (one more added, now there are four shots).

Vnc

Vnc might not be slow, but it sure FEELS slower.
I use rdesktop all the time to connect to windows computers, and rdesktop is brilliant:=) And it also feels much much faster than any vnc ive ever tried.

What is lacking is a "reversed" rdesktop, a small lean and fast program for connecting to X boxes from windows without the hassle of installing an xserver.
