I couldn't find it on Google and I feel it's a different thing than
running Linux X applications (like xterm etc.), which is done by Cygwin/X.

Is it possible to "display" Windows program on Linux via ssh / X?

What I mean, normally we do something like that:

windows_cygwin$ ssh -l user linuxbox -X
linuxbox$ xterm

and we start xterm on Linux, but it is displayed by a Windows X server.

I want to do something in an opposite direction: start Windows apps on
Linux display:

linuxbox$ ssh -l user windows_cygwin -X
windows_cygwin$ notepad


windows_cygwin$ iexplore.exe

And these Windows applications would be displayed on my Linux.

Is it possible with Cygwin?
