       XConsortium - X Consortium information

       Release 6.3 of X Version 11 was brought to you by X Consortium, Inc.

       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 purpose of the X Consor-
       tium  was  to foster the development, evolution, and maintenance of the X Window System, a
       comprehensive set of vendor-neutral, system-architecture neutral, network-transparent win-
       dowing and user interface standards.

       The  X  Window System was created in the mid-1980s at the Massachusetts Institute of Tech-
       nology.	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 consor-
       tium  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.   X  Consor-
       tium,  Inc. closed its doors on December 31, 1996.  All rights to the X Window System have
       been assigned to the Open Software Foundation.

       The X Consortium was financially self-supporting through membership fees.   There  are  no
       license	fees  associated  with the use of X Window System standards and code developed by
       the X Consortium.  Membership in the X Consortium was open to any organization willing  to
       execute a membership agreement.

       The  X  Consortium  was	a highly participative body.  Members were encouraged to actively
       cooperate with the staff and other members in the design and review of proposed specifica-
       tions, and in the design, coding and testing of sample implementations of those specifica-

       The X Consortium accomplished most of its work using electronic mail  over  the	Internet,
       with  individual  mailing lists for working groups.  Internet electronic mail connectivity
       was viewed as a requirement for useful participation in X Consortium activities.  Meetings
       were held as necessary, often in conjunction with industry conferences and trade shows.
