You can occasionally use this marvellous functionality to control dozens of remote machines in parallel (all in a single screen) and run distributed processes, e.g. overnight experiments.

How does one do that in Windows, I wonder. VNC is a mess, which is impossible to handle, both under Windows and KDE (rdesktopet al.-) or GNOME (Remote Desktop Connection, whatever it corresponds to at command-line-level). Compare 30 virtual VNC connections, which are a memory hog, against 30 cascaded-shaded GUI's, where focus follows mouse and everything is scriptable.

The power of SSH, which relies on the pricipled layering of X (being network-service-driven) is why Windows can never penetrate the domain of distributed, super-, clustered and interconnected-computing.
