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.

No, it is NOT all your rant brought forward.

You went out of your way to cuss out one of the mainstays of the Linux OS. You went out of your way to brag about Windows Vista and Windows 7 over the X system, when the two are apples and oranges.

You got pissed because you lost your work and now you're backing off from what you said because you realize it sounds bad, like a lame luser.

You could have simply said it would be nice if X isolated the effects of driver and other bugs, and allowed easy session reconnects. Period. End of story.

And guess what? I'm quite sure the people who maintain X would agree with that and may well be working on it in the roadmap. Did you bother to ask them?

No, you went off the deep end.

Nobody is impressed.
