SYNOPSIS

       Release 6.5 and 6.6 of X Version 11 was brought to you by The X.Org Group.  Release 6.4 of
       X Version 11 was brought to you by The X Project Team.

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.
