Mmm, good point.

So, you're saying that although I can run things on my server,
I shouldn't have expected to get the RDP/VNC extra's (if you can call it
that) such as the menu(items), background, windowmanager, etcetera.

I basically expected the remote gnome to appear as a window that I could
throw fullscreen or have minimized.
Is that possible in any way?

Cheers, Warren
