X11, Window Managers FSM has an article about improvements coming our way in X.org. "There's more coming our way than 'mere' graphical goodness: Xorg developers are about to unleash upon us more performance and ease of use than X ever knew before. Not only that, the work being done now will allow older hardware to perform better and new hardware to be supported faster."

From the unix haters handbook : http://www.art.net/~hopkins/Don/unix-haters/x-windows/disaster.html

I do not have a lot X experience, but i always got the feeling X was far too low level and too network oriented. Almost nobody does the remote display as primary method of running programs. Anyway, it seems to work quite fine nowadays, although some redesigning might not be a bad idea.

Whow! xorg.conf is gone! Thank god! The horrors i had with that file. Maybe there is hope afterall.
