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.

Again, the X people undoubtedly know all about this sort of thing. Eventually they'll either fix it or somebody will fix it for them or somebody will do what Thom wants - make a new server.

Ranting about how Linux could "learn" from a Windows OS that is bloated crap or one that is a re-made version of the bloated crap one and isn't even out yet is not going to impress the X people.

In this rant, Thom is just doing what I said in my post above - he's complaining about crap software. DUH! IT'S ALL CRAP! That's the nature of the software industry at this time. Deal with it!
