    I needed an X-server for the Windows Subsystem for Linux in Windwos 10. I tried the public domain version 6.9 of Xming before VcXsrv and the latter is so much better! With VcXsrv the DPI is automatically recognised and the fonts are properly scaled out of the box. I am using VcXsrv in multi window mode and I am enjoying seamlessly mixing native Windows 10 and native Ubuntu graphic programs without the need for Virtual Machines or remote connections.

    Works fine. Easy and fast. The best XServer at this time. EDIT: performance is about 75%, but it's NOT A PROBLEM of VcXsrv. This is a "feature" of SSH implementation (by design). XRDP (also free) performance is about 95% because don't encrypt data. If you need performance, i suggest XRDP. if you need performance+encrypt xrdp+openVPN. VcXsrv works fine as XServer. (remember, you need install update KB2999226).Thanks.

    I tried to install this software in my Windows 10 Laptop, I have installed K7 Licenced Antivirus and it Quarantined this software. It shows warning that this file is suspicious.
