A software system that performs standardized windowing operations on a large variety of UNIX computers. X-windows was developed by the Free Software Foundation at MIT.
Software system for creating GUI s on X-Terminal s. Developed originally at MIT (as part of the DEC/IBM/MIT Project Athena) but picked up by the wider Unix community. Note that X-Windows is not an actual GUI, it is a set of standards and tools from which GUIs can be specified and built. Has been an influence on the Motif GUI being developed by the OSF. IBM was involved in the evolution of X-Windows through the MIT X Consortium which provided a forum for discussion of the standard. See also X-Terminal, X Window System.
A standard protocol for computer display windows and graphics developed by MIT and available for most computers. DECWINDOW is the version for VAXes and microvaxes, MACX is the version for MACs.
A network-transparent windowing system developed by MIT. It is the basis for Enhanced X-Windows. See also X11 client.
X-Windows provides a GUI for most UNIX systems, but can also be found as an add-on library for other computers. Numerous window managers run on top of it. It is often just called "X".
A network-transparent windowing system developed by MIT. It is the basis for Enhanced X-Windows, which runs on the AIX Operating System.
A UNIX-based windowing environment.
The X Window System is a graphical user interface (GUI) that allows you to log on to a workstation and run multiple X Windows applications simultaneously. You can also run X Windows on a PC using excursion software. Most UNIX machines include X as part of their operating system. Yahoo Search tool to find "pages" on the World Wide Web. Yahoo is organized by subjects, such as Art, Business, Computers, Economy, and even What's Cool

Is a device-independent, networked-based system that provides windows-style graphical user interfaces.
The software system written for managing windows under Unix. A graphics architecture, application programming interface and prototype implementation developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. X-Windows defines a client/server relation between the application program and the workstation. It is not, however, a complete graphical user interface, but rather the basis upon which one can be built.
