SWALL MEADOWS, Calif.–(OPENOSX-INC)–March 5th, 2002-OpenOSX, Inc., a
leading provider of easy to-use, world-class open-source software, today
began shipping their XFree 1.1 CD which delivers true compatibility with
the X-Window library to the Mac OS 10.1.x desktop.
Without typing a single “UNIX” command, the OpenOSX CD will install XFree
4.2.0 and Xdarwin 1.1 configured with the OroborOSX window manager in less
then 5 minutes by simply double-clicking the OpenOSX package icon.

standard for graphical user interfaces. There are thousands of existing
open source and commercial Applications that utilize X-Windows that may be
used after installation.
OroborOSX and XDarwin interleave the X-Window environment seamlessly into
the Mac OS X Aqua environment (digital screen images are available
electronically at: (http://OpenOSX.com/xfree86/screenshots.html))

product Xtools for a small fraction of the cost.
Installation technical support for one seat and de-installation software is
included with the CD.
