    Is there a way to do it without VNC? I'd prefer to just use X if possible.

    I would love if a CLI utility would let you select a program to forward that was running the shell somehow and let you forward/launch programs like you do today with X11.

    $ xdg-remote --list-all
    Available clients are:
    1.desktop [full desktop]
    2.firefox [Google - Mozilla Firefox]
    3.terminator [/bin/bash]
    4.xterm [xterm]

    $ xdg-remote forward 2
    Forwarding 2.firefox [Google - Mozilla Firefox]...

    $ xdg-remote gnome-calculator
    Launching and forwarding gnome-calculator...

    $ xdg-remote --attach-to-desktop 1 sublime_text
    Launching and forwarding gnome-calculator...
    NOTICE: Program will continuing running on disconnect.

    $ xdg-remote --list-all
    Available clients are:
    1.desktop [full desktop]
    2.firefox [Google - Mozilla Firefox] (forwarding)
    3.terminator [/bin/bash]
    4.xterm [xterm] (forwarding)
    5.gnome-calculator [Calculator] (forwarding) (transient)
    6.sublime_text [~/file.txt] (forwarding)

    You do know there is no such thing as "free" anything, right?

    Is Wayland VNC going to be higher-quality than X VNC?

    X VNC is almost seamless quality. It all depends on the server settings and client settings. But if the server's settings are for low-bandwidth, it doesn't matter how high the client settings are.

    If you had a wayland compositor that acted as an X client and could connect to an X server, you could potentially do this. Ideally, one would develop a special protocol that is much more suitable for wayland, and that would be much faster than X (which I have found to be horrendously slow over networks).

    Isn't RDP and whatever protocol VNC uses good enough for todays needs.

    I guess VNC would work if the compositor created a server hosting one window, now that I think about it.

    probably need to adapt the client so that it moves/minimize the local window on the local desktop when you move/minimize the remote one.
