No, I don't think that Unix Windows is an Xwindows clone or anything
like that. From what I've tried of it, the main intent of the
program is to allow a user to have multiple "windows" into a unix
system through one login. For instance, you could have say three windows
open, each at a command line. Then do different things in each
"session/window." That way you can get a lot done with one line
out (from your computer/modem to the unix box)...
I haven't tried the MAC version; the Atari ST version allows I think
7 or 10 windows; the PC version is full screen for each "window" (you
toggle full-screens to get between each); I think the Windows 3.x
version is similar to the ST's...
I believe the "server" (the part that runs on the unix box) should
work regardless of which computer you're using to access it (at least the
ones I've mention, anyways; maybe the Amiga as well if they have the
UW front end)...
A slightly easier way to get multiple sessions (although this
isn't as fancy as UnixWindows) is to get "Screen" which lets anyone with
a VT100 (ANSI?) emulator to toggle between sessions/windows...
As for Xwindows clones, I dunno. (a question from me to the net:
how does MGR compare to Xwindows in terms of purpose, features, etc?)
