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.

Yes, but interviews require setting up a time and place and then transcription. It also requires cooperation and a modicum of mutual respect. At least it does in cases where no publicity is needed/wanted, and there is no $$$ to be made by either party as a result of said interview.

Rants, OTOH, simply require a scowl, a keyboard to punish, a feeling of self-importance, and a forum. When faced with this decision, especially in the face of "wanting to put idiot [insert OS here] users in their place" which avenue to you think the majority would choose?
