{{include tonguesX}}
~The X window system (commonly X Window System or X11, based on its current major version being 11) is a display server and network protocol that provides a basis for a [[GUIIndex graphical user interfaces (GUIs)]] and rich input device capability for networked computers. In Liunux it sits between the Operating System kernel and the [[WindowManagers Window Manger]].
~It has been commented that X is outdated. Two proposed successors are [[Wayland]] and [[Mir]].
