Xorg is fine

The Xorg developers regularly get rid of old stuff that's no longer used, and they also redesign Xorg on-the-fly as they are developing other things.

I don't know where people get this idea of "X is broken" or "X is archaic". I don't have any problems with Xorg, and judging by the amount of progress that was made on it recently, I'm surprised anybody still holds this view.

Having said that, if somebody wants to work on a small side-project of a different sort of graphical server, then they should go right ahead and do it.
