Free implementation of the X Windows System

XFree86 ia a free implementation of the X Window System which runs on *nix-like operating systems. It provides a client/server interface between display hardware (the mouse, keyboard, and video displays) and the desktop environment as well as providing both the windowing infrastructure and a standardized application interface (API). With XFree86 a user cannot only choose the desktop environment they prefer, but can also modify and update their systems as they see best. XFree86 has always been an unabashed supporter of freedom of the user desktop, so we encourage users to customise and personalise their desktops with the application(s) of their choice.
