I'm really impressed by how fast X11 has grown in Linux (of course also *NIX/BSD) since the death of XFree86 and the birth of xorg.

Graphical *nix was quite bad compared to windows performance wise, but also had some major advantages. The main advantage is of course the network transparency. I really enjoy the ability to run an application remotely with a perfect integration. Now if xorg can also be very performant then windows has an even more serious competitor, not only on servers but also on the desktop.
