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."

RE[2]: So this new X

Whatever your issue is ;)

But as X seems to have been around longer than Linux & Unix existed before Linux I dont see the utter ignorance on my part.

I just simply commented that for a project which seems to have started for Unix is getting lots of Linux specific "bits" or first-servings which is also true for projects like KDE or GNOME.

Of course its logical - it was just an observation .

But although I think Linux is a really cool "thing" which has come a long way - people seem to associate OSS with Linux & graphical systems also with Linux forgetting that there is an OSS & Unix(&/compatible) world outside of Linux .

And then of course there is also the real world ;)

Forgetting that - isnt that ignorance ?


Does fully modularised X do anything for increased stability & less memory usage ?
