An open source implementation of the X Window System that has been ported to OS/2 as simply XFree86OS/2, sometimes shortened to XFree86/2, and can be run as an alternative graphical shell or as a task. In addition to the X Window System itself the XFreeOS/2 project ported a whole host of applications to the system from the world of UNIX and UNIX like operating systems.

It should be noted that in X Windows parlance, and therefore in XFree86 as well, the terms "Client" and "Server" have the exact opposite meaning to what the rest of the world thinks they mean.
