Windows X Server For VPS -- VcXsrv Works

about VcXsrv · · Helpful Not helpful

I researched all the alternatives. They are either tricky with lots of cognitive load (Cygwin/X) or ultimately quite expensive (the two popular-for-corporates offerings) if you want any kind of flexibility. VcXsrv "works" and is very "simple". Even though the documentation is sparse in the extreme. We use it to access a VPS, along with Putty, from Windows 7. Worth trying if you want to focus on business and your new VPS apps.
