X11, Window Managers "I've written a lengthy article covering what I learned during the last two years building the Xegl display server. Topics include the current X server, framebuffer, Xgl, graphics drivers, multiuser support, using the GPU, and a new display server design. Hopefully it will help you fill in the pieces and build an overall picture of the graphics landscape."

The only downside it the article refering just about Linux x86 situation and not about how these changes in X server in affect other operational systems and plataforms. (I want to know about BSDs, Solaris and others too, as X server is used by them too and it's evolution is tied too them too...)

The article was about the state of Linux graphics, not the state of the X server. It was already twelve pages long. Covering other OS's would add another two or three pages.
