XNeWS (X Network extensible Window System) was a hybrid Windowing System used in IRIX from version 3.0 - 3.3.2. Xnews was comprised of the MIT developed X11 and Sun Microsystems in-house Windowing System NeWS. Xnews allowed the execution of X11 programs through emulation, or the running of an X server in parallel with the NeWS server. Silicon Graphics use of XNeWS ended with the introduction of the SGI Indigo workstation featuring IRIX 4 and X11.
