## Run Linux Apps with Frontend in Windows through CygwinX

Say you work somewhere where all workstations run Linux, only you have Windows on your laptop, which you basically use all the time. Now as I type this, I am not sure if anyone else shares my fate. Anyway; this does not stop you from running some of the cool Linux tools. Just install CygwinX (through the regular Cygwin installer) and start the XServer from the start menu. Icons will appear in your taskbar and you can start an XTerm. Inside that XTerm, type:
rattle@windows.box$ssh -Y rattle@linux.box Password: Last login: Thu Sep 17 12:43:19 2015 from windows.box rattle@linux.box$ xmaple

and there you go! The -Y switch is the one that does all the magic, obviously.
