Xming was pretty easy to set-up. Run the windows installer, set putty sessions 
to forward X, and it just worked. But NX is a better option, but not 
necessarily an easier one. What I like about XMing and putty is just getting 
the remote window I am running, and not a whole scaled desktop. And I was 
already using putty on a daily basis, so it was the least complicated for me.
