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.

While I agree on the fact that X is a disaster, here is what happens when the graphics driver crashes on Windows:

- you get a blue screen
- the only way to restart, is to restart the whole computer
- of course you lose all your data
