X11, Window Managers It has been one year and four days since X.Org 7.3 was released and a number of months since X.Org 7.4 was supposed to be released, but today X.Org 7.4 is scheduled to finally make it out the door! This release is shipping quite late and with a slimmed down set of features, but in this article we have more details on what this release holds in store for the Linux desktop community and why it may be a short-lived release.

Also, xorg seems to have lost momentum now. Every release something gets cutted and we are left with something sub-par.

Even to this date, compositing is not working as good as on proprietary OS.

Anyway, the server is what the companies earn their money on so no wonder nobody is investing in the client.
