Running S+ on Unix from an NT platform??

And of course, I'm not reading this morning.
The answer is "YES" to both issues. You'll need an X11 server on the NT box, and a remote shell such as ssh (I don't know if telnet will set up the X11 DISPLAY variable to do remote redirect), and you can bring up graphics remotely. It's actually cleaner than the windows NT-only approach, in some respects (we don't have to mess with the MathSoft command-line prompt vs. GUI thing).
