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.

Because, despite arguments to the contrary, $$$ (and fear of losing house and home) is a far greater motivator of men than having their name tied to some open/free code or rep++. The amazing thing isn't that linux/bsd/whatever isn't ahead of windows in whichever metric you'd choose to discuss, the amazing thing is that it's so close to parity with so little actual monetary investment.
