XDarwin is network-transparent, so it’s easy to use with Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris and other Unix environments, according to Mat Caughron of The XDarwin.org Project. With XDarwin it’s possible to configure software to run on other computers, running various operating systems across the network, but to display their results in real-time on Mac OS X. The XDarwin package provides a client/server windowing infrastructure and adheres to the XFree86 standardized application programming interfaces (APIs).
XDarwin enables Mac OS X users to run X11 applications natively and remotely, Caughron explained. This enables secure, cross-network, and local interaction with open source software.
Details can be found at The XDarwin.org Web site, along with a demo version and a technical support forum.
