DESCRIPTION

       The  Open  Group’s X Project Team was created as the successor to the X
       Consortium,  Inc.,  after  the  X  Consortium  ceased  operations   and
       transferred  ownership  of  X11  to  The  Open  Group.  The X.Org Group
       (hereinafter called "X.Org") was created as  the  successor  to  The  X
       Project  Team  after  the The Open Group ceased operating The X Project
       Team. The purpose of X.Org was to foster  development,  evolution,  and
       maintenance of the X Window System.  X.Org operates under the corporate
       umbrella of The Open Group.

       The X Consortium was an independent, not-for-profit Delaware membership
       corporation.   It  was  formed  in  1993  as the successor to the MIT X
       Consortium.

       The X Window System was created in the mid-1980s at  the  Massachusetts
       Institute   of   Technology.   In  1988,  MIT  formed  a  member-funded
       consortium 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
       organization.  All rights to the X Window System were assigned  by  MIT
       to  X  Consortium, Inc. on January 1, 1994.  On December 31, 1996 the X
       Consortium, Inc.  closed its doors and  all  rights  to  the  X  Window
       System were assigned to The Open Group.
