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.

What you've said about windows is not right.
When graphics driver crash in windows it will
1. suddenly restart the system or
2. Great you with BSOD and then restart.

That holds true on all windows including windows 7 because it happened to me on my laptop with GF 8700GT Go GPU.

In both cases it is horrible.
But you are right linux is still buggy and given to customers with no warranty or obligations and you know that; so don't do productivity on it.
