Jeff,

Well, Quarterdeck, the QEMM/Desqview folks, have a pretty good X server
package, and it runs about $150, or so I'm told. It has a multitasking
operating system and tcp/ip support. MacX is pretty good for
Macintosh. I've not used it much or priced it, but the mac folks in the
department are pleased.

And of course, there's Linux... the unix-like OS for the intel x86
architecture. You can install tcp/ip support and run XFree86, the
X-windowing software, on your PC's. Its also available for other
platforms.

Good luck!
