X Is More Than You Think...


T he industry is just beginning to notice the great flexibility that the X Consortium built into the X Window System from the start. Long thought of as simply a graphics display protocol for UNIX workstations, X is now being recognized as a the general purpose, cross-platform application display protocol that it is.

In the same way that the current excitement over the web is precipitated by a repackaging of existing telnet, ftp, and SGML/hypertext technologies into a powerful new computing paradigm, combining X with emerging networking paradigms offers powerful solutions to serving applications independent of the underlying operating system.

Haha, fuxk yeah!
