SSH X forwarding

i was wondering if you could use X11 forwarding if the client computer is a window or mac operating system. When i ssh into my linux machine, i want to run applications on my X server (which is my ssh server too), and have it display on my window machine or mac machine. Is this possible or should i just stick with vnc and just use ssh tunneling?

Yes, it will work.

For windows, you can use cygwin and start your local X server by typing startxwin
ssh -Y sshdhost
I'm using Cygwin/X

For mac, should be the same
