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'm sure the people behind X know all about session reconnects and probably have them on their roadmap.

If Thom wants sessions reconnects, just say so. Ranting about how Linux could "learn" from a Windows OS that is widely regarded as crap, or a Windows version that isn't even out yet is not going to help.

I installed Firefox 3.5.2 just yesterday. Today I notice Firefox has a lot of trouble reloading certain Web pages - they even call it embarrassing in the dialog! - and guess what? Yet another KWin crash!

So if Thom wants to rant, let him rant about the bug ridden Mozilla browser. Just about every time I've had a desktop crash, it's been when Firefox was doing something, either manipulating pages or doing some sort of media thing (downloading video or something).

X is the least of my worries day to day.
