The X Window System for displaying graphical user interfaces on UNIX and Linux systems has just been re-architected to support enterprise-class distributed applications across LANs, WANs, and the Internet. This is the first and only authoritative guide to the new X Window System, codenamed Broadway, and officially titled X11R6.3. Discover how Broadway can allow any user to access any application from anywhere on the Internet, while significantly improving the performance of existing enterprise applications.
