X Windows Server Solution for Windows

Here is my setup. I have a Windows domain using ADS, and all windows clients. I am bringing up a Slackware server to run all my web applications such as Apache, Sendmail and such. What I want to do is be able to run linux apps over the netowork using my windows clients as terminals. I started looking into it and I have read that you need an X server to run apps that require x. I guess my question is can you install Xfree86 on to a windows machine, or are there any free Xwindows systems. I looked into Cygwin, but it seems that there are or maybe i read it wrong were security issues with it. It also seems to install an awful lot just to be able to run an X server. Any information would be appreciated on where to either look, or could help me out right here. Thanks
