What do you mean by x11() doesn't work on Windows?

The R command works and opens a Windows Graphics device with history
recording off.  If you turn recording on, with
does that take care of your needs?

This raises a different question, why does x11() on Windows not offer the option
to start an x11 device?   It is possible to run x11 on windows with cygwin or
several commercial implementations and it is possible for x11 to be run on a
different computer.  Neither of these options is currently honored by the R code x11().
