How difficult would it be to make the equivalent of Windows Terminal Server with Wine?

I really like the concept but your approach seems to limit publishing of apps
to Windows boxes. Theoretically you could run the OCX (Internet Explorer) on
Wine and the Cygwin/X as well but not practically though, if only from a 
performance point of view.

It would be more interesting if Mac/Linux/Unix users could use their browser
of choice and their native X server, which is usually already installed on
those platforms. How exactly is this approach dependent on the use of an OCX?
