This tutorial article explains how to use color under the constraints of a window system for three types of applications: (a) those using a few distinct colors only for labeling or decoration; (b) those using an intermediate number of distinct colors for drawing or economical image display; (c) those requiring high color fidelity for the evaluation of image processing or graphics algorithms. Each of these topics is discussed in parallel for the X Window System and for Microsoft Windows to help readers interested in porting applications from one system to the other.
