Hi Gabriel

For the record, the provided wiki page reference the broadway backend of
GTK, which mean that the software is actually running on the server, and
only displayed in the browser. It's not different that what you'd achieve
with logmein or X forwarding or VNC (etc...).

Running software on a remote PC (like logmein or VNC) usually doesn't allow
the applications there to open and save local files. Does this GTK
implementation allow that?

​I'm having a hard t​ime compiling libreoffice with gtk3 support (or
rather, my VM is having a hard time :D).
However, I did build gtk3 with the broadway module and launched an
application (gedit) on my linux box, and "showed" it on my windows box.
It's really only the display that goes to the browser, as I see my linux FS
and nothing else.

It's still interesting, though. If my LO build end anytime soon *and* work
with gtk3, I'll post more details.

​​Curious peoples can try the various tutorials on the web (not always
straightforward...) to enable broadway as a GTK backend on their systems
globally, and thus use it with libreoffice (or anything using gtk3 I
suppose). At least under linux.

Hum... Sounds like a linux thing... I think I will stick with Joel's
suggestion :)

Yes it is! Hehe.
Although it might be possible under windows, building the needed parts on a
linux system is usually easier as build tools and source packages are
easier to come by.​​
