Well, X was designed from the start to saturate Ethernet with the minimum
number of users.
It has to be said, a major advanatge of using a Unix box is having a nice
window manager such as Sawmill; X on Windows just ain't the same. Although,
I have one here called X-Deep/32 and it's not too bad. It'll run in
multiple-window mode and Emacs works nicely.
