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.
