The linux client works just fine.

Have you looked at vnc? It allows you to run a "virtual" X
session on a machine and then connect to the Xsession with a
client. There are linux, windows and Mac clients
(and servers..). You can run the vnc client on a windows
machine (or even a citrix session).
Depending on the speed of the pipe you are connecting over this
might be just what you want. Last time I tried it Citrix gave
better performance over a slow link, but I see there is now a
"deferred update" mechanism in the server which claims to help
in many cases (ie it waits a while before sending out updates
and so often manages to coalesce updates into a single update).
