Strange ideas do you have.

Why don't you use this?

Or read this list as a usenet group. With both you can post too.

You have a point, but I like the way how X2go works more. It's cleaner.
The way how Nomachine NX works is strange, and not really compatible
with how SSH works.

I did not know about openNX. Interesting project.

If everything is done, you don't need X2go!

A proxy would be nice, but not very important in my opinion. I think
it's not much work for other NX clients to support the X2go way.

You say "all nx servers". In my opinion there is not even a good
alternative for an OSS NX server. Only FreeNX, but that seems to be
dead. And I have heard the new version of Nomachine NX will become
completely different...
