If you want to dispense with the bloat of X on your Windows system,
run a VNC server on the Linux box and a VNC client on Windows.

Hi Jim-

I do use VNC to connect to my Linux machine, which doesn't even have a
monitor attached. But VNC has some limitations in terms of support for
24-bit color, and I don't find image processing across it to work very
well. So I normally have IRAF open an X window on my PC.
