Sorry, let me ask my Q this way:

Let's say I install Wine + TextPad (a Windows text editing app) on our Linux box.

Can I log into our box remotely, launch TextPad, and have it show on my local desktop via X11? (Assuming I'm running an X server on my local desktop).

Sorry if this is a dumb question.

And thanks for that URL. I see several apps there useful for us.
