The X.Org Foundation reminds
that the first announcement for the X Window System came out on
June 19, 1984. "The X developers have pushed the boundaries and
moved X from a system originally written to run on the CPU of a VAX VS100
to one that runs the GUI on today's laptops with 3D rendering
capabilities. Indeed, X predates the concept of a Graphics Processing Unit
(GPU) as we currently know it, and even the company that popularized this
term in 1999, Nvidia.
" Congratulations to one of the oldest and
most successful free software projects out there.
