Cool, thanks!

It's more fun to get that wrong, though, since everybody knows exactly 
what you mean by "X-Windows", and it's really quite stupid for them to 
insist on exactly what you call it. I think it's because they have a 
trademark on "X Window System", and can claim that just using "X" is an 
abbreviation of that, but "X-Windows" counts as something different that 
isn't covered by their trademark.
