I totally agree. I use NX over the proxy server at work across to my FC7 box at home (I'm writing this over NX), and the performance is close to that of being on my local lan. Anyone who has suffered with VNC over the Internet for any length of time will surely appreciate NX. It's like encrypted RDP for your Linux box.
Installation on FC7 is simple. Just grab the RPMs from the Nomachine website and install. If you are behind a router, you'll want to forward a port for NX to your FC7 box's port 22 (for instance, I have port 8001 at my router forwarded to port 22 of my FC7 box). Then just fire-up one of the 3 NX clients (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X), configure host/ip, username/password + port (ex. 8001), then configure it to run any of the following:
custom: any single application that can be run in a floating Window on the host desktop (firefox), or a light window manager run in a new virtual desktop (fluxbox)
Another cool feature about NX is the ssh client (nxssh.exe). If you're behind a proxy at work, you can use nxssh.exe to tunnel through the proxy to your NX server at home and have full console access. You can also do a ssh tunnel with port forwarding so you can have a direct encrypted connection to any of your services at home as well (I use it to tunnel to my home squid server).
