All the OSes use more or less the same structure as Linux. Maybe X needs some optimization, but it's not fundamentally different from what the other OSes use. They all have graphics servers and client-side APIs just like X does. Even in older Windows' this was the case, although the graphics server happened to live in the kernel.

There is so much misinformation and hatred about X floating around the Internet these days. I wish it would stop.
