The main operating system used for image processing in ESO is UNIX.
On the SUN workstation the X11 OSF/Motif window system is used to provide
virtual terminals or displays. For those who are not familiar with
UNIX systems this section tries to provide a very basic introduction.
For more information, the interested user is referred to the various
UNIX or SUN publications. A few copies of these manuals and other
documentation are available through OSC Helpdesk. More information
can be found on-line (URL http://www.eso.org/it/, item
