X11, Window Managers FSM has an article about improvements coming our way in "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."

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.

It is RIDICULOUSLY useful on home servers; you can access GUI configuration tools running on a headless server. If forwarded X can save 100 people from having to learn how to manually edit their smb.conf, then it's worth it! :-D

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

Just as long as there's a good way to manually pass settings to Xorg. For the past year or so, X has been able to come up without an xorg.conf anyway.
