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.

most people just want something that works. They couldn't care less of the development process of their software

What it really comes down to is this inconsistent, and unfortunately common, viewpoint:

"We want and fully expect world domination. And if they don't come flocking to us then, well, they're just stupid. And if anyone criticizes our products or methods then, well, they're just lazy whiners."
