Except that NX _isn't_ Free, and FreeNX seems to be dead.  I've been reduced
to using NX, which wouldn't bother me too much except that they don't
provide a proper debian/Ubuntu repository - just the individual .debs which
are slightly odd.  There is a new project (2x?) that is Free and may
supercede FreeNX but I'm not holding my breath.
