      MobaXterm vs Xming
      pros, cons and recent comments
      MobaXterm is a collection of functions required to accesas Unix based systens in one app. These include Terminal Access, File Transfer, and X11. The great advantage is, it works out-of-the-box and you don't need to have any other software.

      Xwing is an X Windows system, MobaXterm is a terminal app. Very very different purposes and functionality.

      Erquint Not an X server. That's the sole functionality that Xming is carrying. There is no crossover between these two programs whatsoever.

      VcXsrv vs Xming
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Where Xming opens simply (I could not get it to NOT open at startup), VcXsrv opens a window where you can control certain things, such as open start up, open GNU in another window, and small things like that.

      Up to date with the X11 upstream source. Good font rendering OOB - no twiking needed.

      Because it's free and regularly updated. The free version of Xming hasn't been updated for a long time.
