Network Transparent Widgets

Network Transparent Widgets (NTW) is a protocol and application framework that allows a single server to serve thousands of remote GUI applications. The client applications are nearly indistinguishable from local, native applications. The protocol is language and architecture neutral. Server language bindings for C, Common Lisp, and Java are in heavy development.
