Windows Unless you're seriously into networking (and okay, maybe you are), all the features in the new Secure Remote Connection - not to mention the pieces required to make it work - can be fairly tough to figure out. But the benefits make sense: "With this feature," writes Steven Vaughan-Nichols, "a user on any Windows 7 system can gain access to the corporate intranet's resources. In short, with the right back-end setup you can run office-only programs and get to server-based files from any Windows 7 PC." He explains it all in Accessing Office Resources from Anywhere using Secure Remote Connection.

Am I missing something or Xserver over ssh could do this, like, for years?

Please bear with me. Integrated with desktop and usable by casual users?

I know plenty of "casual" users that use remote xsessions over a VPN for work.

They specifically talk about corporate use. And if you are trying to remote into another persons PC you aren't so "casual" anymore.

No Xserver's never been able to do this for programs written for Microsoft windows:)
