    The X Window System provides lower level window, graphics, and input
    functions. There are also standard protocols like the ICCCM window
    management protocols. The various toolkits provide higher level services
    like GUI controls (pushbuttons, menus, etc.) and application frameworks. The
    toolkits are all built on top of the X Window System.
