KDrive (formerly known as TinyX) is a light-weight X server targetting specific chipsets. It is recommended to be used on thin-clients and embedded systems. If you are on a standard desktop system you might want to use x11-server-xorg and the video driver corresponding to your video card. Xephyr is a X Server which targets a window on a host X Server as its framebuffer. Unlike Xnest it supports modern X extensions ( even if host server doesn't ) such as Composite, Damage, randr etc. It uses SHM Images and shadow framebuffer updates to provide good performance. It also has a visual debugging mode for observing screen updates. Possible uses include: - Xnest replacement - Window manager, Composite 'gadget', etc development tool. - Toolkit debugging - rendundant toolkit paints can be observered easily via the debugging mode. - X Server internals development - develop without the need for an extra machine
