"iLIVEx is a fast, secure and fault-tolerant X11 client
that turns the Apple iPad into an X terminal for Linux and Unix. It
allows iPad users to connect to Unix and Linux desktops and
applications hosted on remote Unix and Linux servers.
"iLIVEx features an ultra-thin data transfer protocol allowing
for LAN-like performance, even over 3G connections. Its connections
also run over securely encrypted SSH tunnels. Built-in session
persistency allows users to reconnect to their remote desktops
should the iPad get disconnected, turned off or the user
temporarily switches to another iPad app."
