X Window System

The X window system (commonly X Window System or X11, based on its current major version being 11) is a computer software system and network protocol that provides a basis for graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and rich input device capability for networked computers. It sits between the Operating System and the Window Manger.

The is the most common implementation.
