Color Settings for Legacy Applications
X-Win32 includes the ability to set Xresource defaults, which tells your remote host that you are using an X server capable of color display. This causes applications like xcalc and xterm to look as they would if you logged on to the console of your remote host. Typically, these applications will have colors instead of being black and white like they are in other Windows X Servers. In addition, X-Win32 can read a copy of your Xresources or Xdefaults file on your Windows machine, saving you the time and hassle of copying these files to all of your remote hosts.
