 for Network extensible Window System
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Network extensible Window System
     (NeWS) An elegant PostScript-based windowing environment,
     invented by James Gosling, the author of GOSMACS.
     NeWS would almost certainly have won the standards war with
     the X Window System if it hadn't been proprietary to Sun
     Microsystems.  There is a lesson here that too many software
     vendors haven't yet heeded.  Communication is based on
     PostScript and server functions can be extended.
     See also HyperNeWS, OpenWindows.
