GDK inherited the concept of display from the X window system,
which considers a display to be the combination
of a keyboard, a pointing device and one or more
<glossterm linkend="screen">screens</glossterm>.
Applications open a display to show <glossterm
linkend="window">windows</glossterm> and interact with the user.
In GDK, a display is represented by a
<link linkend="GdkDisplay">GdkDisplay</link>.

GDK inherited the concept of screen from the X window system,
which considers a screen to be a rectangular area, on which
applications may place their windows. Each screen has a
<glossterm linkend="rootwindow">root window</glossterm> which
defines the area of the screen. Screens under X may have quite
dissimilar <glossterm linkend="visual">visuals</visuals>.
Each screen can stretch across multiple physical monitors.
In GDK, screens are represented by
<link linkend="GdkScreen">GdkScreen</link> objects.
