Note the applications I am running are written for Xlib.

I have been working with two commercial XServers. The first was SCO's XVision 
(sold off to a company that is now called Tarantella
http://www.tarantella.com/products/vision/ )

I worked with an earlier version provided by Reuters and I must say it had 
some nice features for screen captures, caching, copy & paste between Unix 
and Windows.

The other XServer (currently in use ) is by Hummingbird and is called the 
Exceed family http://www.hummingbird.com/products/nc/exceed/index.html?cks=y. 
I rate it as good, but I must say the XVision seemed slightly more user 
friendly to configure. Your mileage might vary. There is now a newer version 
on their website. Perhaps some other persons could comment...

I would be interested from those having managed to get GNUSTEP up and running 
on Windows if they could chip in.

You will also want to consider running either NFS or Samba to integrate the 
directories and files from the UNIX box with your Windows clients.

For ease of use and security I suggest you configure the Xserver passively 
with SSH X11 tunnelling (http://www.uic.edu/depts/accc/software/exceed/
sshexceed.html )
