"Did you know that you can access and run Unix apps directly
from your Windows desktop?
"That's right! You can work in a good old X Window terminal
right alongside your spreadsheet in Windows. If you have a Unix
system on your network, you can make it accessible to all your
Windows users. No Unix installation hassles, no need to configure X
Window on individual machines.
"You need a Unix machine running the X Window system on your
network, and X Server software for Windows. Several of these are
available on the Net, free."
"X is based on client-server architecture. That is, X is split
into X Client and X Server. These two components are usually, but
not always, on one computer. Thus, the X Server can be on one
computer and the X Client on another, communicating with each other
over a network."
