Hi, I am reading the book "Fedora Linux" published by O'Rrilly. The book mentions the terms "X Server" and "X Windows" etc.
My question: Are they same?
Should I don't need to care them since they hidden beneath the scene?  

Thank you.

Hi,

The X Window system includes the X Server.  Here is detailed information:

Please note that a new display server will possibly be replacing  the X Window Server: named Wayland.
