Open-source free equivalent of eXceed?

Does anyone know of a free, open-source equivalent of eXceed (an X server for Windows)? I've got Linux running on my home PC and I'd like to be able to open X windows on my work laptop which is running Windows XP.

Alternately, you might have a look at freeNX

depending upon what you are trying to acomplish.

Thanks Blinker_Fluid, Cygwin/X looks like it's going to do the trick.

Alternatively, you can run XLiveCD from your CD drive in Windows which runs Cygwin/X without the need for installations.
