X11() is the standard Unix device: see your subject line. Testing x11() under Windows isn't relevant to your subject line (which in any case is not helpful -- the posting guide asks you to use informative subject lines).

There is no 'R 2.7', and you are explicitly asked in the posting guide not to be inaccurate about this.
