XWD vs DDS:
|Full name||X Windows System Window Dump||Microsoft Direct Draw Surface|
|Developed by||X Window System||Microsoft|
|Type of format||Image file formats||Texture files|
|Introduction||In the X Window System, the program xwd (X Window dump) captures the content of a screen or of a window and optionally saves it into a file.||The DirectDraw Surface container file format (uses the filename extension DDS), is a Microsoft format for storing data compressed with the proprietary S3 Texture Compression (S3TC) algorithm, which can be decompressed in hardware by GPUs.|
|Technical details||xwd runs in one of two ways: if a user specifies the whole screen or the name or identifier of a window as an argument, the program captures the content of the window; otherwise, it changes the shape of the cursor and waits for the user to click in a window, whose content is then captured.||The DirectDraw Surface format is useful for storing graphical textures and cubic environment maps as a data file, both compressed and uncompressed. The Microsoft Windows file extension for this data format is '.dds'.|
