26.3. Running X11

X11 can be run in two modes: full screen or rootless (the default). Both modes run side by side with Aqua, although full-screen mode hides the Finder and Mac OS X's desktop (to hide X11 and return to the Finder, press Option--A).

To launch the X server, double-click the X11 application (in /Applications/Utilities). An xterm window that looks similar to a Mac OS X Terminal window opens, sporting Aqua-like buttons for closing, minimizing, and maximizing the window. Also, X11 windows minimize to the Dock, just like other Aqua windows. Figure 26-1 shows a Terminal window and an xterm window side by side.
