Neatx: Open Source NX Server

Google have been looking at remote desktop technologies for quite a while; the X Window system can be used over the network, but it has issues with network latency and bandwidth. Neatx remedies some of these issues, designed from scratch with flexibility and maintainability in mind, minimizes the number of involved processes and all code is split into several libraries. It is written in Python, with the exception of very few wrapper scripts in BASH and one program written in C for performance reasons. Neatx was also able to reuse some code from another Google Open Source project, Ganeti. The code still has some issues, but we're confident interested developers will be able to fix them. Neatx implements features not found in FreeNX, such as the drop-down menu for session control in rootless sessions.
