Hi Tom,

I'm very sad to learn about the announced death of X windows remote
display after so many years. I have never had problems using OpenGL on
remote X windows when communicating between Linux machines. Anyway, IMO
remote desktop sharing is not an option with OSX machines : far too slow
and very low quality. Unless you know of an option other than the remote
desktop service shipped with OSX, which I would be very interested in.

With best regards,

Miguel Ortiz Lombardía
