I got  a lot of people asking me to post details about our intended project.

Basically, what we are trying to do is run native Windows applications on a 
remote X desktop; we feel that the best way to do this would be to use wine 
as a base to develop a Windows to X translator/mapping, and then export the 
X calls over the network. It looks like wine should already implement much 
of the needed functionality in order to run Windows applications on Linux, 
so a windows port of the display code tied into an Xserver seems to make the 
most sense as a way forward.

We're looking at contracting a development team to work on this with an 
estimated time to completion of 3 months, and are comfortable with an open 
source development model. The finished product will of course be released 
under the GPL.

Feedback on this idea is welcome.  Interested developers/organizations can 
contact me at chetan.venkatesh at gmail.com
