[buug] KDE on a remote PC?

Okay, once I get settled here I'll stop asking so many questions. Ian said he was not sure this scenario was possible but I did work under this environment at two, at least, different jobs and want to know if it's possible with BSD.

Our Solaris servers fired up X windows on the server, but I don't think the server actually showed the desktop on its display. It had something running in the background, is what I think was going on. But anyway, we would connect through an X windows server, I believe Xceed was one we used at the first place, and it would find the KDE running on the server and you'd get the KDE on your PC, just like a workstation. It could be minimalized like any other application on your Windows machine, and then popped back open whenever you wanted access to it.

Anyone see this before? Anyone know if BSD can do this? I've been assuming that it can. I mean, can't BSD do anything Solaris does, only better ;)
