I work with two 100% VNC-based desktops in UNIX. One of them is large and I
use it locally to run a window manager and X applications for local ussage.
My second desktop is small, whithout a window manager and with very few
colors... I use it for server maintenance from home and even when I am
traveling. I think having a blck and white option, as you suggest, would be
an excelent idea. I could run my "tiny desktop" much faster than I do it
now. I think this is an excellent idea!
