Lecture by James Gosling of Sun Microsystems. Describes NeWS, a system in which client messages containing PostScript programs are passed across the network to be executed by the server. This use of a programming language as a basis of communication protocol provides for the extensibility of the windowing system. NeWS also has a high-level imaging model that enables device-dependent advanced rendering. Discusses comparisons to similar systems.
