It's not the ports. It's the graphical presentation. Oh, and I've run
I'm really just fine with terminal windows and SSH-forwarded apps if
those are necessary.
I don't keep enough state running remotely to make it worth my time to
have another level of nested desktop cruft to deal with. Ties up too
much real-estate for no win. As I've noted several times: I've already
got SSH local/remote. For NX I'd have to install clients and servers,
and X libraries. For something I really don't want or need in the first
While I could see the value for someone /not/ running a native Linux
