Samsung SGS-19M X-Terminal
High performance graphics terminal for Unix networks. Samsung SGS range supports X11R5 X-Windows X-server protocol and host computers ranging from Sun workstation to Linux PC.
The X window system (commonly X Window System or X11, based on its current major version being 11) is a computer software system and network protocol that provides a basis for graphical user interfaces (GUI) for networked computers. It creates a hardware abstraction layer where software is written to use a generalized set of commands, allowing for device independence and reuse of programs on any computer that implements X.
X originated at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1984. The current protocol version, X11, appeared in September 1987. The X.Org Foundation leads the X project, with the current reference implementation, X.Org Server, available as free and open source software under the MIT License and similar permissive licenses.
