You may have heard about this thing called X Windows and this other thing called
ssh that easily permit VPS instances to run GUI code while displaying things
on a remote X server.

P.S. X applications like xterm work flawlessly on the hosts in question.

P.P.S.  You might want to dial down the snark, particularly since you seem
        to be unfamiliar with the basics here.
