I can't vouch for the quality, but I see Windows software called
Xming (sourceforge has the public domain version). Many years
ago I used Exceed by Hummingbird. It is now owned by OpenText.
A little pricey, but it works well and might be worth it if this is
for professional use.

I'm typing this in gmail on iceweasel within Debian on my Atom 230. I am
running a display of 1920x1080 at 24 bit color. It works well for most
desktop use but begins to stutter with higher definition (480p+) video
