Since there was some question as to the appropriateness of posting this
here (sorry), I'll be as-brief-as-possible :
Question : Free X-Windows software available for PC's?
Answers: The concensus was that there was nothing that runs under DOS, although
there were rumors that something might be available (perhaps a demo) in
the CICA ms-windows archives. Haven't checked yet.
If DOS is not essential, there are three public domain unix-clones
which will run an also free X-Windows port :
1) Linux - avail at tsx-11.mit.edu
2) 386BSD - check with Archie for locations
3) NETBSD - avail. at agate.berkeley.edu
Free x-windows is called xfree86 (clever, huh?)
Also, I was told that a company named Starnet (firstname.lastname@example.org) has
a product called Micro-X available at a reasonable price for us
Thanks for the scores of replies, sorry if the "inappropriateness" of the
post offended, but my PC is my main system/management tool as our systems
(SUN, that is) are often in use 24hrs a day, 7 days a week, and telnet
just wont suffice for a lot of what I need to do.
