I often connect to my home machine from work, and use X windows over ssh and then cable internet provider. Since GNUstep is extremely slow on thatconnection even with xlib it exludes any GNUstep program as a viablealternative to other X clients (but emacs, for instance, works reasonablyfast).I hate to throw cold water on something but it's best to be honest. ;) There's not much hope for this with the present architecture. Essentially, pixmaps are being transferred over the wire. Java/Swing applications have the same issue. The solution would be to reengineer things so that 'back' ran on the display server, which is essentially how OS X works.
I recommend to checkout Sun Ray Server and Secure Global Desktop from Sun Microsystems. Both run not only on Solaris but with some tweaking also on Linux and they both help a lot solving this problem.
