I have a question about using X terminal.  Currently we are using Silicon
Graphics IRIS for protein structure manipulation.  The programs we have are
QUANTA, MIDAS,...  My question is, if it's possible to run such programs from
an X terminal, since these programs are graphics extensive applications.  Do I
need a special type of X ternimal, or, say, using MacX to turn a Mac into a
X ternimal also works?

BTW, read comp.windows.x for more technique discussions about X windows.

Any suggestions?
