I kept meaning to try this some day, and your posting prompted
me to try it today. It does seem quite zippy.
However, NX seems to follow the 'vncserver' model of sharing an
entirely new X session. I had hoped it would support the 'x11vnc'
model (also used by Windows VNC server), where it shares the
existing X session running on display :0.
Can you do that?
If not, it looks like this is a good tool for headless servers,
but not necessarily what I want to connect to my PC that is
already running at home.
