[gfsd]X Window(s?) System

On a side note : It seems that all over the Free Software Directory the
system known as X is referred to as "X Windows System".

The manual page ("man X") tells us :
"The X Consortium requests that the following names be used when
referring to this software:
- X
- X Window System
- X Version 11
- X Window System, Version 11
- X11"

Now, Maybe it would be more correct to refer to "X" as the "X Window
System" (notice the absence of the "s" after "Window") ? :-)

Yours sincerely,
