History of the X Windows System

Windowing history for modern computer systems goes back into the 1980's with the work done by Xerox Corp and having been popularized by Apple in its early Lisa computer and the better known MacIntosh series of computers. About this time, also, there were efforts made to bring graphical user interfaces to UNIX computers and the X Windows system was developed as a client server based system to provide UNIX with a windowing type of interface. With Linux having come on the scene in the early 90's, the X Windows system was ported to run in the Linux environment in what is known as the XFree86 system. Much information can be found about this project including compatibility with various graphics cards at http://www.xfree86.org
