free win32 X server

I'm sure many of you have also been looking for this for some time. A
number of you have probably also found references to this free MicroImages
X server, and excitedly followed the links, only to find that it is
Well, at the above url, you'll find the old, free version.
I would love to see a full Linux distribution released under cygwin (I'm
partial to Debian). I'm not the only person who thinks an X server usable
under win32 is one of the biggest hurdles. So I hope the cygwin/xfree86
project has some good success.
I got it from a friend who had it on his hard drive from when he installed
it. The .zip file contains the original install files. I'm glad I
finally found somebody who had it and didn't delete it.
I feel obligated to mention that I have not had the opportunity to
virus-scan this thing, and can make no promises that it is actually a
pristine, untainted copy of the original. But it hasn't eaten my computer
yet, and has actually done what I wanted it to.
I haven't used it w/ cygwin yet, since i haven't yet installed cygwin on
this machine -- I've only tested it by remotely running X apps on Linux
boxes on this lan.
Somebody should be curious... to do apps remotely, telnet into the remote
unix box, set your environment variable "DISPLAY" equal to YourIP:0 where
"YourIP" is the IP address of the machine running the X server. Then just
run your X apps.
Using the bash shell:
setenv DISPLAY YourIP:0
