    1 X Server
    2 --------
    3 
    4 The X server accepts requests from client applications to create windows,
    5 which are (normally rectangular) "virtual screens" that the client program
    6 can draw into.
    7 
    8 Windows are then composed on the actual screen by the X server
    9 (or by a separate composite manager) as directed by the window manager,
   10 which usually communicates with the user via graphical controls such as buttons
   11 and draggable titlebars and borders.
