A real good read... (Xplain)


I do like a good read, and the above link is a nicely written way to
understand X Windows and X11 and related. I remember the first time I heard
of X, and had some consultants explain it, a long long time ago. And it
took me a while to get used to it - the day I moved from a character based
terminal to a Sun/3 workstation with an infinite set of display options,
and a whoopingly large 1600x1200 display. It took nearly 20y to be able to
afford one of these at home, and today, we finally have 1920x1080 (alas,
no more 1920x1200), 2560x1440, 3200x1800 and real 4k and 8k screens
coming, with prices dropping on a weekly basis.

Have fun
