[vox] An open source NX server (from Google, even)

Just noticed this on Slashdot (sorry if it's old news :) )


"NX technology was developed by NoMachine to handle remote X Window
connections and make a graphical desktop display usable over the
Internet. By its own admission, Google has been looking at remote
desktop technologies for 'quite a while' and decided to develop Neatx
as existing NX server products are either proprietary or difficult to
maintain. 'The good old X Window system can be used over the network,
but it has issues with network latency and bandwidth. Neatx remedies
some of these issues,' Google engineers wrote on the company's open
source blog. NoMachine had released parts of the source code to its NX
product under the GPL, but the NX server remained proprietary. [...]
Neatx is written in Python, with a few wrapper scripts in Bash and one
program written in C 'for performance reasons.'"
