Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) is defined by a the
Object Management Group.  It defines the object-oriented Interface
Definition Language (IDL), mappings to a variety of languages like C, C++
and Smalltalk, and an infrastructure to allow functions calls to be
distributed.  Its OO RPC.

The ILU package which is available for debian provides a similar
environment.  I'm not sure if there is a true CORBA product for Linux.

I don't know how the X consortium got involved with this.
