    One interesting remark with the X vs NeWS comparison is that because what was exchanged where programs instead of the arguments of an RPC the synchronisation was a concern at the network level but by postscript.

    Having never used NeWS and knowing very little about postscript I still have more questions about how NeWS worked, was the input selection mask mechanism open for extension? Did they share the ‘security flaw’ of all clientebeing able to listen to all input? I heard Gosling say that whether borders where inside of the window or not was not defined by the server, did GUI toolkits provided their own box-model?
