X11, Window Managers Have you ever been annoyed by Linux' lack of a coherent graphical boot process? Graphics hardware causing problems during sleep/wake cycles? Problematic virtual terminal switches? Kernel-based mode-setting, a new feature of Xorg still in heavy development aims to solve many of these problems by moving the mode-setting code from the user-space X driver into the Linux kernel. Phoronix takes a look at this new feature.

How about you fix the fact I can see my mouse pointer randomly shootup to the top left, lower left, bottom right or top right in the middle of it's use, while not depressing the left mouse button [for right handed users].

That's a damn annoying bug that's been around for several revisions.
