To quote one of Chris Browne's Web pages:
You may have come here looking for information on The X Window
To be perfectly pedantic, the graphical system used on Linux and Unix
and BSD OSes is not called XWindows or X Windows.
The word "Windows" is apparently trademarked by Microsoft, and hence
references to X where there is an "s" added to the word "Window" can be
argued to be a trademark infringement.
X is commonly called "The X Window System," "X," "X11," "X11R6." Some
people prefer to describe it as "X Windows" specifically because it bugs
