  X Window System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
X provides the basic framework for a GUI environment: drawing and moving windows on the screen and interacting with a mouse and keyboard.
X derives its name as a successor to a pre-1983 window system called W (the letter X directly following W in the Latin alphabet).
The term "X Windows" (in the manner of "Microsoft Windows") is officially deprecated and generally considered incorrect, though it has been in common use since early in the history of X and has been used deliberately for literary effect, for example in the UNIX-HATERS Handbook.

X provides the most basic underpinnings of a graphical user interface (GUI): functionality for drawing and moving windows on a screen and also for interacting with a mouse cursor.
X derives its name as a successor to an earlier (pre-1983) window system called W (in the modern Roman alphabet the letter X directly follows W).
In May 1999, stewardship of the X Window System passed from the Open Group to X.Org, a non-profit organization focused exclusively on maintenance and further development of the X Window System.

X provides basic underpinnings for a graphical user interface (GUI): drawing and moving windows on a screen and interacting with a mouse and a keyboard.
X's usage of the terms "client" and "server" is the reverse of what people often expect, in that the "server" is the user's local display rather than the remote machine.
X provides "mechanism, not policy." As such, it does not specify or provide the user interface features, such as buttons, menus, window title bars and so on.

 LinuxDevCenter.com -- What Is the X Window System
The responsibility and stewardship of X is currently in the hands of the X.Org Foundation; the X.Org implementation of the X Window System is included with most of the major Linux and free Unix distributions.
The window manager is an application that is itself an X client, with responsibility for managing the appearance and placement of the windows on the screen.
X itself has no role in determining the appearance of the screen, or what users are allowed to do with windows.

The X Window System is a network transparent window system which runs on a wide range of computing and graphics machines.
One of the advantages of using window systems instead of hardwired terminals is that applications don't have to be restricted to a particular size or location on the screen.
The X Window System standard was originally developed at the Laboratory for Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and all rights thereto were assigned to the X Consortium on January 1, 1994.

 X.Org Foundation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The X.Org Foundation is the organization holding the stewardship for the development of the X Window System.
The creation of the Foundation marked a radical change in the governance of X. Whereas the stewards of X since 1988 (including the previous X.Org) had been vendor organizations, the Foundation is led by software developers and using community development on the bazaar model, which relies on outside involvement.
The X.Org Server is the reference implementation of X, and is commonly used on Linux and UNIX; it is the fundamental technology underlying both the modern GNOME and KDE desktops and older CDE desktop environment; applications written for any of these environments can be run simultaneously.

When the X Window System was first released, many complained that the system was big, slow and complicated.
The job of the X server is to handle the interface to the hardware (graphics adapter, keyboard and mouse) and a few additional low-level services such as drawing, color allocation, event handling, inter-client communication and managing a resource database of user preferences.
Also, note that the X server may use a small amount of video memory for other purposes, so you may not be able to use all of it for your bit-planes.

This may have an interface akin to that of Microsoft Windows or of the Macintosh (examples include Kwin in KDE or Metacity in GNOME) or have radically different controls (for example: twm, the basic window manager supplied with X).
Most users use X with a full desktop environment, which includes a window manager, various applications and a consistent interface.
X development at this time had become moribund [10]; most technical innovation since the X Consortium had dissolved had taken place in the XFree86 project [11].

 Chapter 10 Installing the X Window System
That is, X clients can run either locally (on the same system that the server is running) or remotely (on a system somewhere on a TCP/IP network).
However, how windows are manipulated (placed on the display, resized, and so forth) and how they are decorated (the appearance of the window frames) is not controlled by the X server.
The window manager is only in charge of painting the window decoration, that is, the frame and the buttons that let you close, move, and resize windows.

X-Windows (colloquially known as X11V2R6.3.2p77a or just the X Window System, Protocol 11 Version 2 Release 6.3.2 Patch 77a) is the standard graphical interface for computers running Leegnux.
Although this makes it look far better than Mac OS X and even Windows XP, some users find it hard to distinguish between their applications when they all have the same title.
It is as important to decide what a system is not as to decide what it is. Do not serve all the world's needs; rather, support what you feel like and tell them they just need to write extensions themselves if they want to actually do anything useful.

It is therefore beyond the scope of the Cygwin/X User's Guide to document all of these X Window System components.
