RE: [vox-tech] off subjec: PDA showing a copy of Windows screen o n aPDA screen

Is this a project that you want to put a lot of time into?  If you go 
down the wine path, I imagine you will have to then configure an 
x-server on a linux based PDA.  While this would be pretty cool and 
might enjoy a slick wireless LAN connection to the box running the 
app, you might not enjoy the setup process involved.  Or the setup 
process might take too much time to be worthwhile.

I don't know if Back Orifice provides remote windowing capability, 
but you might look into that.  Also, Win XP is supposed to have a lot 
of new remote admin features.  I'm not a Windows expert though...

Good luck with this project--it sounds like it'd be really cool if 
you could figure something out.
