Xming: An ancient version of Xorg (at least for the free version) (6.9)

I have seen Solaris 10 default to Xsun in some cases... (Although Xorg
is available...)

What I meant is that requiring OpenGL might lose some portability...
(Needing an X server for console apps is irritation, but solvable
using something like Xvnc. This becomes a lot harder to solve if you
need an X server with OpenGL)
