Such bashing have nothing to do on a public list, where people are involved 
on open source programs:
* NX libs are free and open source
* qtnx is a great nx client, free and opensource.
* freenx is free and opensource.

If you don't understand Georges advices to compile qtnx, if you aren't able 
to look the nomachine website to download the sources ( with 2 clicks from 
the website), if you can't read the doc, you aren't ready for using open 
source programs.
