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.

It's mentality

Its not so much design its mentality. Personally when I write code I assume my code contains bugs even when I tested it and I could not detect bugs. Therefore I include fallback scenarios and test these as well. Many developers find this a waste of time saying the code should just work however I think fall-back scenarios are not there for the developer, they are there for the user in case the developer makes a mistake.
