Curious if anyone uses X Darwin?
What do you use with X Darwin?

I used it with Orobor X to run GIMP and to "play" with a few other unix apps.

Then I got a new drive for my G4, and didn't reinstall it. If you need to run XWindow applications, then it's necessary. You could also use Apple's X11 to do the same.

X Darwin is an OS X package and installs using the installer application....easy. I'd recommend you also install Orobor X and use Fink to download and install unix application packages.

Since Apple's own implementation of X11 was introduced, I have used that one. It offers the same as other 3rd party ports of X11 ports but with a better integration with the system.

From what I understand, it will be a default install in the forthcoming panther when it's released.
