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 am a network administrator for a big company, I use Arch Linux as my main operating system with a virtual windows XP. I have never had to do a hard reboot or hard power off. If the need be, there is always ctrl+sys req+reisub. But even Arch Linux being a rolling release, with always the latest version of a package, and me using the trashy catalyst ati drivers, and no hard power off yet? I don't know but I think I use my system for far more productivity than most of the people. And I manage a network with lots and lots of windows machines, which are always giving problems.
