I just switched from X-Win32, which was fairly buggy, to Cygwin/X and 
have found it to be surprisingly usable. I've been using it for about a 
month now, and have yet to have a problem with it. On the down side, 
you have to install a bunch of other Cygwin stuff, but it's also fairly 
handy if you're stuck on a windows box. I know I tried many moons ago 
when it was fairly young and found it most unsatisfactory, but it seems 
to have come of age.
