  • XQuartz is Apple Inc.'s version of the X server, a component of the X Window System, for Mac OS X. The X Window System is a standard framework for creating applications with a graphical user interface on Unix-like operating systems. XQuartz is therefore required to allow cross-platform applications not specifically designed for OS X to run on it, including much scientific and academic software. The name derives from Quartz, the OS X graphics framework, to which XQuartz connects these applications. The current version of XQuartz is a DDX included in the X.Org Server and implements support for hardware-accelerated 2D graphics, hardware OpenGL acceleration and integration with Aqua, the Mac OS X graphical user interface. X11.app was initially available as a downloadable public beta for Mac OS X v10.2 and later included as a standard package for Mac OS X v10.3, which can be downloaded from Apple's website. In Mac OS X v10.4, X11.app was an optional install included on the install DVD.
