How did you find out that Apple has dropped X11?

by danbi In reply to Apple's certified UNIX ha ...

Interesting. On my Macbook, running OS X Lion I have an application in Utilties I find an application named X11. Upon launching that application, I get an terminal window with bash in there.

ssh -Y myserver

and I am able to start any X11 program.

Should I go and return back my Macbook, as Apple has apparently sold me something they are not supposed to have anymore. Or was my laptop hacked and someone installed X11 on it -- on the secure OS X, you know. ;-)
