This is only a quick post out of the category: „Software I would recommend“. If you are looking for an X server for Windows (yes there are people using unix systems from an windows host ;-) ) I would recommend a program called Xming. This small Windows XServer is freeware. Its available for download at Sourceforge at http://sourceforge.net/projects/xming
Usually there are four reasons why I recommend this piece of software:
– It’s free! (but if you like you can also buy a different commercial x server)
– Its portable. you can install it to your USB stick and you will get an Xserver „to go“
– It works! And the installation is straight forward
– It integrates with putty portable. If you like, it installs also the putty portable edition. Putty is an very good telnet, ssh client software.
