I second Ciaran's recommendation to look at Xming.
I was using it quite extensively for awhile, and it
was (almost) flawless. The only(?) problem I can
now recall was copy-and-paste from an M$ disaster
to a *ix window (or maybe it was the other way
around, I cannot recall now) caused Xming to die;
but since I essentially never used M$ disasters,
it didn't matter (to me). Others did not report
having the problem, so it could have been something
with my admittedly very peculiar (and old) setup.
Fortunately, I'm now back in a pure *ix world, and
so couldn't give a feck anymore (excepting e-mails
from brain-dead M$ disasters are very annoying!).
