Dear Log,

O'Reilly just OpenBookified the XWindows manuals. (Look in the left sidebar -- they're in no particular order there.)

  • From "man X":

    The  X Consortium requests that the following names be used when refer-
           ring to this software:

                                       X Window System

    • Randal L. Schwartz
    • Stonehenge
    • I wonder why they are adverse to the thing that everyone actually calls it.
      • "Everyone"? Not people who pay attention. It was called X and X11 by most of my work community for many years, until "Microsoft Windows" became popular as a desktop, and then people started saying "X Windows". Ugh.

        So perhaps the dichtomy comes from whether you saw X or Microsoft first, or learned from someone who did, recursively. {grin}
