    Can a user on Mac OS X run X applications of a Linux box?

    Lets say my friend has Mac OS X on her laptop (she does). Is it possible to ssh into my linux machine, and run gui applications through my X server on her computer. (The same as you would if you were on a linux box, and connecting to another linux box)

    Also are there any clients to allow you to run X on windows? I assume cygwin is needed for that.

    - TightVNC or (maybe) TridiaVNC

    There is a commercial x server for win32, don't remember the name, but you can check WeirdMind http://www.tam.cornell.edu/Computer/...ess/weirdmind/ or WeirdX (has a Mac installer), which are java based and very interesting!

    Are you looking for an X-Windows client for the Mac running OS X?

    If you are, there are a number of them available.

    Go to www.apple.com and search the "Built for OS X" software listing.
