I have an NX server on my machine at home. If I connect to it from my Ubuntu laptop it is very fast and usable. However, if I connect to it from my Win 7 machine it is much slower and difficult to use. Is this normal? I tried changing the settings on the Windows client, but can't get it to match the performance of the Ubuntu client.

Turning off Direct Draw under the Advanced tab in the Windows client seemed to more or less solve the problem.
