At home I have my desktop computer and loads of open windows. When I decide to work outside or in another room with my laptop. I'd like to select a few windows and just make them appear on the laptop. They should be directly attached to the ones at the main computer. I don't want my entire desktop, like VNC, but something like X11 forwarding over SSH. The SSH thing sounds wonderful but moving an existing window seems to be a hard task.
I've read about FreeNX but I want to know if there is a simple way, and if FreeNX even does what I want. I've seen feature lists saying "seamless windows", but no screenshots proving that.
Both computers run Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
