X Window System Groups Reorganize

The groups behind Unix and Linux's fundamental windowing systems, the X Window System, are reorganizing and merging together.

In a press conference held today at LinuxWorld 2004 in New York, members of the old X consortium, some members of the disbanded Xfree86 core developer group, and Havoc Pennington of freedesktop.org announced that X.org and xFree86 have essentially merged, and that the reformed group is working together to bring "not just more eye candy but new functionality" to the X Window System for Linux and Unix.
