Yes, but those are X servers.  X terminology is backwards; the "server" is
the part you look at, the "client" is the part that runs on the host.

The OP was talking about an X client for Windows ... i.e. something that
runs on a Windows machine and allows you to have access to it remotely,
viewing it through an X server like Hummingbird, X-Win32, Xfree86-Cygwin,

At least that's the way I think it works, and the terminology for it!
