X11, Window Managers Over the past couple of months, and especially over the past couple of weeks, I've been working very hard to write and complete my thesis. I performed all the work on Windows 7, but now that the thesis is finally done, submitted, and accepted, I installed Ubuntu - and immediately I was reminded of why I do not do any serious work on Linux: the train wreck that is X.org.

I think it's a lot easier to say X server is at fault for requiring application developers to do something that's obviously cumbersome, than to say everyone else is at fault. E.g. it's more rational IMHO to say that one program sucks, than to say that (essentially) every other program written for Linux sucks.
