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.

I was going to agree with you your same point has been put by Linus as others in a "positive light" see any article regarding contribution to the kernel. Albeit you must remember your precious OS X is built on Open source.

As far as amateur[sic] FOSS programming goes, you can see where it really shines and thats small tools and add-ons that make up a whole. IMO are where it really shines which is why I'm really excited about Openoffice.org 3.0 and Firefox 3.0 is simply fantastic.
