X== was developed in the early 2000's by a currently unidentified programmer that wanted to annoy his friends, all of which were coincedentally allergic to beets.
Most X== programmers kill themselves after a short period of time, but have difficulty because of the near-immobility of their hands/wrists brought about by abnormally advanced stages of carpal tunnel syndrome.
