The PC X server that was most recommended from people with setups
similar to mine was VisionWare's XVision. Another X server that
received a lot of recommendations was Hummingbird's eXceed/W. One
person had found that XVision had better performance than eXceed
on his system using Beame&Whiteside PC NFS. PC-XView from NCD was
also recommended by a few people.

Thank you to all that have responded:
