  <title>Introduction to <application>X.org</application></title>
  
  <note><para>There are two packages in BLFS that implement the <application>X</application> 
  Window System: <application>X.org</application> and <application>XFree86</application>.  
  These packages are quite similar.  In fact the base system of <application>X.org</application>
  is <application>XFree86</application>-RC2.  The primary difference as of this writing is 
  the license provisions of the packages.  For someone building a package for their own use,
  these issues are not significant.  Most large commercial distributions have decided
  to use the  <application>X.org</application> package, but several still use 
  <application>XFree86</application>.</para>
  
  <para>A second reason for the forking of X packages is the stated goals of the 
  developers.  Some developers were unhappy with the administration and progress of 
  <application>XFree86</application>.  X.org's future plans include significant 
  improvements to the internals of the system and more frequent releases.</para>
  
  <para><application>XFree86</application> continues to be a solid, conservitive 
  application with excellent driver support.</para>
  
  <para>Both <application>X.org</application> and <application>XFree86</application>
  can be installed in the same way, but this section will provide a slightly
  different and more current variation for installation.</para>
  </note>
  
  
  <para><application>X.org</application> is a freely redistributable open-source
  implementation of the <application>X</application> Window System. 
  This application  provides a client/server interface between display
  hardware (the mouse, keyboard, and video displays) and the desktop environment
  while also providing both the windowing infrastructure and a standardized
  application interface (<acronym>API</acronym>).</para>

  <para>The first package contains the <application>X.org</application> libraries amd 
  support programs,  the second contains standard X programs, the third contains the 
  X server, the fourth and fifth are fonts, the sixth is normal documentation, and the seventh
  is hardcopy documentation.</para> 
   
  <para>To check your downloads for integrity, download the <filename>md5sums</filename>
  file.  Then:</para>

  <para>All seven packages should give an OK status.</para>
