Here is a recomendation from the EMBnet node in Belgium

Hi everyone,
We were happy to discover the demo file (in fact fully functional, 
one X server at a time per subnet) of Micro-X. 
It is a shareware or inexpensive X window 
terminal emulation for PC Windows. It looks very functional ( in my case, 
under packet driver and Winsocks alpha 18), and is probably an excellent 
opportunity to spread X awareness among our users.
Graphics are definitely slower than on PCXWare, while text scrolling is 

Price ranges from 150$ (single copy) to 8$ (site licence, 50 or more).
To be found at the "usual" PC soft sources (cica, simtel, ...)
file name is xwindemo.zip
Ask info at : support at starnet.com.
