| Summary:

The presence of gaseous X-ray halos around massive galaxies is a basic
prediction of all past and modern structure formation simulations. The
importance of these X-ray halos is further emphasized by the fact that they
retain signatures of the physical processes that shape the evolution of
galaxies from the highest redshift to the present day. In this review, we
overview our current observational and theoretical understanding of hot gaseous
X-ray halos around nearby massive galaxies and we also describe the prospects
of observing X-ray halos with future instruments.
