NAME
XOrgFoundation - X.Org Foundation information
SYNOPSIS
Release 6.7 and later of X Version 11 is brought to you by the X.Org Foundation.
DESCRIPTION
The X.Org Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) char- ity corporation. It was formed in 2004 as the successor to the X.Org Group at The Open Group. The purpose of the X.Org Foundation is to fos- ter the development, evolution, and maintenance of the X Window System, a comprehensive set of vendor-neutral, system-architecture neutral, network-transparent windowing and user interface standards. Membership in the X.Org Foundation is free and open to anyone. The X.Org Founda- tion hosts a public git repository of the source code on freedesk- top.org. The X Window System was created in the mid-1980s at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1988, MIT formed a member-funded consor- tium to provide the technical and administrative leadership necessary to support further development of the X Window System. In 1992, MIT and the membership decided it was in their best interests to move the consortium out of MIT and create an independent, stand-alone organiza- tion. All rights to the X Window System were assigned by MIT to X Con- sortium, Inc. on January 1, 1994. On December 31, 1996 the X Consor- tium, Inc. closed its doors and all rights to the X Window System were assigned to The Open Group (then known as the Open Software Founda- tion).
