  • this is the best Xserver i used in the last years. Xming has problems with copy/paste and become impossible to work with EMACS editor using windows. This server solved the problem definitively . i used for year CYGWIN due this issue but it's very heavy system and difficult to make the configuration only to use the XSERVER. This X was the best solution and work excellent in new windows 10 .

  • After using it VcXsrv for years, I can really say that VcXsrv is by far better than the any other xserver I've used on windows.

  • Wow! This project has enabled me to launch and use GUI Linux apps on Windows through WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux). I've created this account just to write this 5 star review!

  • It installed and worked, unlike other X servers for windows

  • I was looking for an Xserver for Windows 10 32-bit to connect with Ubuntu 16.04. I was first introduced to Xming, I figured the latest version of Xming wasn't completely free. I had found and tried older free version, but ran into a bunch of problems with loading errors and fonts. Sometimes the popup windows were out of bounds of screen and fonts were messed up. Some programs didn't load at all. As with VcXsrv, it worked right out of the box, didn't have to tweak anything. It just worked perfectly and fast. Thanks to developers for all the work and making it available for free!
