Abacus for X Window System

This is abacus for X Window System. Essentially, this is a proof by induction that a computer is more powerful than an abacus, since a computer program can contain an abacus. But then again, you can simulate a computer within a computer, so what does that show. Actually, with a real abacus, one can move more than one row at a time with 10 fingers. But on the other hand, a real abacus does not have the current sum displayed as an integer.
