The problem with remote X is that it is horrible slow.
Generally no. The problem with remote X is that most of the modern applications and toolkits are very sloppy about avoiding latency. This is magnified by the fact X keeps less client state by default and tends to dump the problem on the toolkit and apps.
VNC often \"feels\" faster on a remote link because it isn\'t hitting latency problems even though its bandwidth use is far higher. Much of what NX does is to reduce round trip latencies by very smart caching.
If you want NX on ARM just recompile the free versions.
Ssh tunneling doesn\'t help entirely - it won\'t fix the latency problems although it might compress a bit. You might well be better off using VNC on a long distance link.
