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 really never had something like those Xorg crashes ever. This surprises myself aswell, because I am using third party proprietary nvidia drivers.

I also never heard of that kind of problems of the ZevenOS User base.

Thom perhaps you try another userfriendly and for you good known desktop (beos) based on a very stable debian system.
ZevenOS Neptune. (http://www.zevenos.com)

Xorg is a bottleneck for linux on the desktop atm. But there are lots of people working on a rewrite of Xorg fixing all the annoying things in Xorg.
A replacement would bring much more problems and difficulties. A better and improved Xorg is the answer of most of the problems I think.
Windows 7 has an improved Graphical System. They developed it from windows nt on and its very stable right now. But I wouldn't use Windows because I don't want to have Microsoft spying my computer.
