Updated Xming

Xming is an X server for MS-Windows. With it and something like PuTTY, you can connect to a Linux box & make your ’Doze workstation slightly useful again.

Today, Xming was updated.

It’s now more compatible with ’Doze and with the “original” X.org server (from which it’s been ported), featuring ever-more-sensible keyboard mappings and increased SFU/SUA compatibility.

It doesn’t bring you a empenguinated machine, but it does bring you a big chunk of the utility very quickly. You get some very odd looks running KMail or Konqueror from a ’Doze box, but it can be very handy.
