is shipping XFree 1.2 CD, which delivers compatibility with the X-Window library to the Mac OS 10.2.x desktop.
The X Window System is an open source industry standard for displaying remote graphical applications; XFree is a native implementation of the X-Window library. Without typing a single UNIX command, the OpenOSX CD will install XFree 4.2.1 with the OroborOSX window manager, fully configured in under five minutes, according to OpenOSX’s Jeshua Lacock. XFree 4.2.1 and all required and optional libraries have been compiled using gcc 3.1. Lacock said this offers “at least a 20 percent performance gain over previous versions of the OpenOSX CD.”
The OroborOSX and XFree software interleave the X-Window environment into the Mac OS X Aqua environment. Installation technical support for one seat and de-installation software is bundled with the CD. The OpenOSX CD is shipping immediately for US$30 with six-month upgrade-free CD subscriptions for $80.
