No, in unix-like systems, the graphical user interface is called X. You run
a program called an X server that displays stuff on your screen. Well, it
doesn't matter if that server is running on your machine or some other
machine out on the network. A program running on one computer can display
stuff on another computer as long as it has an X server running.
So what you could do is emulate a X server under windows. Windows would do
the actual display but there's be a program running that translates X
server commands into Windows display.
That's what I'm looking for.
