in binary form under a free for commercial and non-commercial use
license similar to the Adobe Acrobat reader software that we find
in most Linux distributions. A KDE-based NX client, kNX, also is
available. kNX works and is used by quite a few people daily, but

is not yet generally recommended.

“Knoppix also includes FreeNX, a fully GPLed implementation of
an NX server application, based on the NoMachine GPLed Core NX
libraries and utilities. So Knoppix enables you to access any free
or commercial NX server in the world or even run your own FreeNX
one from CD-ROM…”
