The X Window System provides an architectural substrate that supports graphical windowing interaction among computers and workstations with fundamentally incompatible machine architectures and operating systems. While X supplies a rich set of window-management and networking tools, it stops short of mandating actual user-interface look-and-feel characteristics. A description is given of the basic functionality of the X Window System and how one vendor has undertaken the design of a developer toolkit, layered on top of the X substructure, that can be used for constructing graphical user interfaces.<>
