ssh does this for me already - I use the pc screen & pc keyboard because
those are so much more convenient than the freerunner when editing files
or installing stuff.

And to send a SMS from the PC, I can run openmoko-messages from the ssh 
command prompt. Then I get the messaging app displayed on the pc. Same 
for all the other graphical apps on the freerunner.

Of course this is done with a linux PC, but install a windows xserver 
and then this should work for a windows pc too. (Or run linux in a 
virtual machine.)
