I use it with pidgin, xterm, rdesktop, and occasionally firefox so it's
possible that it doesn't work well with more sophisticated apps.  But,
the developer seems pretty responsive so it seems like any reported
problems have a chanced of being fixed.  I use it to check cygwin
problems when I'm at work and my "cygwin machine" is at home.

One minor problem is that the support for various platforms is spotty.
I've had to build packages for OpenSUSE myself and the packages for
gentoo often lag the release by months.

Anyway, this is off-topic but I thought that I'd spread the word about
this app.  I used to use the freenx stuff but I was always tinkering
with it.  xpra, for me, just works.
