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.

Software crashed , crashes and will crash .
As we are all humans and make mistakes, there is no way that software never ever will crash ever again.

We need to talk about the technical issues, because, who should fix the problem, when we don't know the technical backgrounds ?

If you are requesting for a better experience in the future you need to address the right people. In my opinion X.org is on the right way.
If third party driver vendors would write drivers that will run in user space not the kernel the problem might get solved easier.
If they release drivers as opensource it would be much much easier for all of us.
