I find that after using it for more than 5mins I forget that I am working
on a remote desktop and have at times found browsing the web in work
from my home PC is faster than using a browser on the local network.
I found FreeNX after messing around with Zen2, I was using VNC to
log into the virtual machines it seemed very clunky even over the local
FreeNX kicks ass big time.
The set up was handy enough just remember you have to add local users
to the FreeNX user list so they can login over NX. I missed that point when
I first got it installed and spent a lot of time chasing my tail.
