Ok kiddies just found a sweet thing you can do to run linux apps in a citrix-esque way (and its SECURE) and it also works on Windows

ok you get open ssh server installed on your linux box and enable X11 forwarding (edit your config files (do some googling))

when you ssh over LAN/WAN use

ssh -x ip.address.goes.her

if you execute commands like kate (KDE Advanced Text Editor), Amarok (Media Player) or any other Linux app with a graphical front end you will get the display on YOUR desktop. Also with media players, the sound comes from the remote system.

To get this in windows you need to install CYGWIN (free) and connect as normal. Most common distributions of linux have an ssh client built into the konsole so no install is necessary

If you set up port forwarding you can run your home apps from ANYWHERE

I use this from my laptop to a headless ubuntu box which has more hard drive space) to tell it to play music for me :) FUN

Peace
