XLiveCD - A LiveCD based on Cygwin for X Windows forwarding via ssh

XLiveCD: "XLiveCD allows users of Microsoft Windows to connect to remote Unix computers, run graphical applications and have the graphics displayed on their desktops. The software runs from the CD without being installed. XLiveCD was prepared by University Technology Services to facilitate use of research Unix systems at Indiana University by Windows users on campus."

I found this mentioned today at SecGuru and had to give it a try. It worked great, after ssh'ing into one of our Linux servers here on campus, I ran konqueror and a nice graphical view of my home directory popped up. I was able to right-click on files and open them with their appropriate application or type in a URL and surf the web right from the server.
