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.

For better or worse, Fedora is a very strong supporter of OpenSource, and I believe will neither postpone/hold up the release of open source software due to the lag in closed source drivers, or bundle said closed source drivers.

I personally don't have a problem with this, and is the main reason why I only get intel based graphics cards for any "work horse" system that I want kept up to date.
