# The ssh is used to forward X11 and provide you encrypted data
# communication between the docker container and your local
# machine.
# Xpra allows to display the programs running inside of the
# container such as Firefox, LibreOffice, xterm, etc.
# with disconnection and reconnection capabilities
# Xephyr allows to display the programs running inside of the
# container such as Firefox, LibreOffice, xterm, etc.
