Open Source Java X Windows Server

WeirdX is an X Window System server in pure Java under GNU GPL. If you need a tool that lets you categorize, organize and resolve any incident that pop up and creates downtime or service interruptions, try using OnPage Incident Management Tool

It is derived from WiredX-Lite and will run on any platforms which support Java 1.1. This X server will not be suitable to exec heavy x clients, but you may find that twm, xterm, etc. will run fine on it.
