I was checking the nomachine NX website and agree that it looks pretty
powerful. I am confused on something, however. It appears that the
nomachine version of the server and client are both free, so why would I want
to get freeNX? Also, how would I go about setting it, freeNX or
nomachineNX , on kubuntu? Is there a good HowTo that I missed while
googling? Thanks for the help.
