FreeNX Server -- (story of year 2006)  The 'NX' software, which is
proprietary got Free Software replacement, 'FreeNX Server', which was
developed a year before Free Software NX client was.
Therefore early users of FreeNX Server had to use proprietary NX
client to work with this technology. Such case will fall into
'contrib' until Free Software NX client becomes available.
