X server for Microsoft Windows.

I'm looking for an open-source X server for Microsoft Windows XP. I'm evaluating Exceed and X-Win32 but they're not open-source.

Thanks, Bob

Take a look at Cygwin's XFree86 port. I've set up many Windows workstations using X desktops into both Linux and Solaris machines with it. The docs that accompany the packages should be more than enough to get you going.

I think that Cygwin is the most popular choice. Good recommendation.
