Well, if the target host is a dual boot Windows + Linux box, it is
possible using ssh -X together with wine.
I just did that from WindowsME into another Windows box running Linux at
the time. I used Cygwin (weel, this mailing list is about Cygwin, isn't it?)
From Windows prompt:
ssh -x target_host
A nice screenshot of remotely run Freecell is here:
Of course I could start from Linux but that would have nothing to do
with this mailinig list, would it?
