I am interested in understanding the meaning of the display name, “:0.0“, on Windows. Additionally, I would like to know where Xming puts its listener socket for others to discover, and where PuTTY connects to when I set the “Display location”.

Furthermore, I am curious about the Windows equivalent of a “unix domain socket”. Lastly, I am wondering who sets the standard for managing these displays on Windows and where I can locate it.
