The VAXstation 100 was a graphics terminal manufactured by DEC. It is based on a Motorola MC68000, and attaches to a VAX host through its UNIBUS.

The VAXstation 100 is of some historical note due to its role in the development of the X Window System. Babara Liskov's CLU group had acquired a number of VAXstation 100 terminals and needed a windowing system running on Berkeley Unix. Initially W was used, but Bob Scheifler largely re-wrote it to become X.
