No, I don't make any assumption that MS Windows can "stream" the display 
in a client/server mode, nor blame Cygwin that it can't do so (if the 
system doesn't support it).

I just hoped there is some way of "simulating" that behaviour.

Terminal Server is not for me, as it incurrs costs for each connection, 
and VNC is not what I'm looking for, as on Windows it is possible to run 
it for one user only (unless you run it from within a Terminal Session, 
which doesn't make sense of course).
