I understand that, however, Xfree86 is usable on linuxm68k? isn't it?
I thought I read it was.
If it is, that means that the TT video, Falcon videl (up to 256 col though
with videl) and various ET v.card drivers already are written.

Anyone to confirm this?

I tried an earlier version.
The whole point in having X11 (imo) is networking with X servers, and
directly compile X11 programs etc.
In which W does not at all.
So I see W as a replacement to the AES, which can't compete.

X11 as a complement to the AES, not a replacement.
