Apple to drop in-house X11 support and more in Mountain Lion | MacFixIt – CNET Reviews

With the release of OS X Mountain Lion, Apples inclusion of the X11 windowing system in its OS will also be halted. As with Java, instead of releasing an in-house version of the X11 system, Apple will be relying on the separate XQuartz development team to keep a stable version of the X11 windowing system available for OS X. When you open a program that requires X11, the Mac will give you a notification and a link to the XQuartz project Web site so you can download the latest version of X11 for your system.
