I use the xming home page


http://www.straightrunning.com/XmingNotes/

both 32bit and 64bit versions are available.  I've used both for the corresponding versions of win7

You actually want the Source Forge site to get the free, open sourced version.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/xming/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xming/files/Xming/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xming/files/Xming-fonts/


Straight Running makes it, and open sourced their older version, 6.9.0.31.  You have to pay for their newer version, 7.5.0.76.  You need to download both Xming and Xming-fonts to get full functionality, or you'll have blanks where characters should be in Emacs and other GUIs.  Xming-fonts is fully up to date, but the open sourced Xming was last updated in 2007.

the source forge site links to the original xming page which was updated this month and a small donation/fee is sufficient to get the most recent .

True, but he asked for free.  It's not a "donation" if it's required.
