Xpra is an utility that gives you 'persistent remote applications' for X. That is, unlike normal X applications, applications run with xpra are "persistent" -- you can run them remotely, and they don't die if your connection does. You can detach them, and reattach them later -- even from another computer -- with no loss of state. And unlike VNC or RDP, xpra is for remote applications, not remote desktops -- individual applications show up as individual windows on your screen, managed by your window manager. They're not trapped in a box.

Xpra is currently ~beta status. It's a bit crude -- various polish-y features are unimplemented, and most error reporting includes tracebacks, but it is usable for real work.

Xpra is included in the combined wimpiggy/parti/xpra releases.
