problem with nxserver is there isnt an open source replacement for every 
component in the stack.  i dont say this because i hate closed source, but 
rather it makes working across platforms a real pita (OS / architectures).  i 
ended up switching to ssvnc as it nicely integrates ssh and/or ssl into the 
process.  install ssvnc on your client and x11vnc on your server and you're 
golden.  the performance is the best ive seen so far, but that is compared to 
X forwarding and other VNC clients ... not NX.
