"Tenon Intersystems, a Mac OS Web server developer, plans to
offer a fully integrated X Desktop for Mac OS X, which is designed
to provide "seamless integration" between an X Window display
environment and Mac applications."
"Tenon's new X Window Server will be an easy-to-use,
flexible Mac OS X application that will integrate the best elements
of Apple's Aqua desktop with state-of-the-art X Window tools to
provide a powerful extension to Apple's new OS," says company
spokesperson Anita Holmgren."
"Pay attention here. The new X Desktop is pronounced "X" as in
"X marks the spot." But the X in Mac OS X is pronounced "10." Got
that? Okay, X Desktop will purportedly not only allow remote X
applications to be displayed on the Mac OS X desktop, but will also
include complete set of X tools and libraries to support local
execution of X applications and X games on OS X. Extending Mac OS X
with an X Window porting environment will enable high-resolution
3D-modeling and animation, graphical visualization and image
rendering applications to be built directly on Mac OS X, says
"Tenon's X Window Server application will be downloadable as a
public beta as soon as Apple's OS X public beta is available. The
final product is slated to ship when Mac OS X ships in early
