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.
