First off, THANK YOU for providing the credentials prompt functionality for Xlaunch, it does finally make Xlaunch profiles usable for me.

My request is to build on that functionality and make it a bit more "friendly". Since the purpose of VcXsvr is to provide a graphical environment, having a console window prompt for credentials seems a bit "clunky" and out of place - a proper GUI window would be much more fitting. Additionally, it would be further improved by adding key bits of information to the window, such as what server is being connected to, and what userid is being used. Particularly because after you save the Xlaunch profile, this information is no longer obvious. Ideally, it should behave similar to the connection process for Microsoft Remote Desktop, or even WinSCP.

Thanks again for working on this. It is a breath of fresh air to see a new X server under development. Keep up the good work!
