That can be done with Haiku as well. We should have a relatively 
working VNC server :)
Btw, BeOS sources had support for a networked version of the app_server 
link protocol, but it wasn't enabled. I'm not sure it ever worked 
I believe many apps would have problems with that, as many just use

happen (and so when it needs to be uploaded back).
(but that can be fixed when we have sources.
