X Windows - on Windows!

Development - XWin Server

Contributions to the XWin Server are more than welcome.

Source Code from Cygwin's setup

Use Cygwin's setup to install the xorg-server package, and select the 'src' checkbox to install the source code. This source code is the upstream X.Org source code with multiple patches applied, and is known to build and function on Cygwin, so this should be the starting point for those wishing to work with the source code.

Source Code

See the Cygwin/X Contributor's Guide for information on obtaining the Cygwin/X server source code and also compilation tutorials, compilation tips, expected build times, overviews of the technologies involved, and a full bibliography.
