MI/X 5.0 for Windows


A Professional X Server for Windows

MicroImages developed MI/X as the X Server for its line of TNT products.  With MI/X you can:

  • Use your PCs as X terminals in a network environment -- MI/X works fine as an X terminal emulator.
  • Make your PC a true X Server and run multiple X clients from your desktop. MI/X works fine there, too -- after all, that's why MicroImages developed MI/X in the first place.
  • Below are some technical illustrating some of the features of MI/X.

  • Note: the X Server included with MicroImages' TNTmips Free software cannot be used as a stand alone X server.

    Features of MI/X

    Choose X or Microsoft Windows Desktop

    As illustrated, MI/X can be optionally setup to operate in Windows Desktop (rootless) mode or X Desktop (full-screen) mode. 

    In Windows Desktop mode each X client window will appear as a separate window intermixed with any Microsoft windows which are also open.  All MS Window's icons, taskbar,  and other desktop features are still available on this rootless desktop.

    In X Desktop mode a large X window is opened at the size you specify which can be smaller, equal to, or much larger than the resolution supported by your display board (see below for virtual X Desktop operation).  All your X client windows will then appear on this X Desktop.  Since MI/X is simply another Microsoft Windows application, If you want to access your Windows desktop you can iconify this large X window or use any of the other methods provided by Windows.

    Choose a Large Virtual X Desktop

    If you choose to use the X Desktop mode you can make your desktop or workspace much larger than your current monitor.  All the X client windows you open can then be positioned anywhere on this virtual desktop.  Your monitor's view area can be repositioned instantly to any position on this virtual desktop using scroll bars or the small auxiliary Workspace Overview window which automatically appears when you set up a virtual X Desktop.  The illustrations below show how MicroImages uses this virtual X Desktop or workspace to view images and other map data much larger than the monitor and how the Workspace Overview window provides a synoptic view of the X client windows on this desktop and the interactive tools to move your real view over them.

    Set Preferences

    MI/X's Preferences window is where you can set up the size of the X Desktop or workspace.  It also provides a means to calibrate the scale of the real view, set the background color of the desktop, toggle on and off the Overview window, the title bar, and so on.

    Direct support for TrueType fonts

    MI/X will automatically find all TrueType fonts that Windows knows about and make them available to X clients as scaled fonts. TrueType fonts are presented to the X client as iso10646-1 (Unicode), which means that X clients get access to the full range of glyphs in the fonts.  This is illustrated by some of MicroImages' use of TrueType fonts in connection with our other TNT professional products.

    Span Multiple Display Monitors

    MI/X supports the use of multiple display boards and multiple monitors in either  X or Windows Desktop modes.   If your MS Windows is running spanning several monitors then MI/X will also span across them as illustrated below with results from other MicroImages TNT professional products.
