A standard which the X Consortium is currently (January 1997) developing and plans to release soon as an open standard. A prime goal is to be more bandwidth-efficient and easier to develop for (and to port) than the X Window System, which has been widely described as over-sized, over-featured, over-engineered and incredibly over-complicated.
