X11, Window Managers "Five months after release of X11R7.0, the modularized and autotooled release of the MIT Licensed X Window System source code, the X.Org Foundation has issued its first modular roll-up release. X11R7.1 supports Linux, Solaris, and BSD systems. It includes important new server and driver features for embedded systems, 64 bit platforms, enhanced operating system support, and accelerated indirect GLX support. It most importantly demonstrates to developers and industry immediate benefits of modularization."

now I have about 280 packages to download, configure, compile, and release... not exactly fun.

Are you seriously saying that they don't have an automated way to compile it all at once that takes care of dependancies? That would be ridiculous.

KDE has tons of modules and apps that you can compile separately, but that doesn't mean I have to do it that way. Just configure and make the master makefile and everything gets sorted out for you.
