Definition: Nano-X Window System


An open source graphical windowing environment for small devices typically running under Linux. Similar to the X Window system, it is designed for limited amounts of memory and storage. Nano-X supports the Win32 programming interface and an Xlib-type API. Formerly known as Microwindows, Nano-X was relabeled such in 2005 because of trademark clashes with Microsoft over the Windows name. For more information, visit http://microwindows.org.
