X System Concepts and definitions

X requires a system that consists of workstations capable of bit-mapped graphics. These can be colour or monochrome.

A display is defined as a workstation consisting of a keyboard, a pointing device (usually a mouse although it could be a track ball or graphics tablet for instance) and one or more screens.
