    X11 is provided with OS X, but is an optional component.

    Install it from your OS X DVD.

    It's great isn't it? I used my PowerBook to pipe XServer output from some Solaris boxes I was supporting. You could see all the Windowsheads around me getting all upset because they had to go to the servers themselves to do the same thing.

    Of course, they could have just installed X11 on their PCs but they wouldn't. Probably because it wasn't supported by Microsoft :D
