Anybody know if there an equivalent for this software?  I heard of opening a X Windows from another PC but I do not know how to do it?  Any nice info on that.  Can it be done from a Windows machine?

If we are talking about the same product, "PC Anywhere" is just a remote connection tool for windows-to-windows use. If what you want is to be able to run X application on a Unix/Linux box from a windows box, then "PC Anywhere" isn't what you need. For that you need an X server for the windows box. There are a number commercial vendors, such as Hummingbird, NCD, and others that have X servers for windows.
