This wrong.  Read the  icroimages web site.  They mention that Microimage for Windows
is built using X11R5 libraries.

This is your opinion!!!!

I am refering to X-server. MIX is the only free X-server for Windows.  It cannot handle more then 256 colors and is built against out-dated X11 libraries.  That is what I meant.

You misunderstood.  If you are porting and using a lot of X applications from UNIX to Windows.  It's worth having a good X-server.  Just for DDD I will not advice you either.
