your comment does not make sense. You have operating system at the bottom, X.org in the middle and window managers+GUI toolkits+desktop environments features dependent of their toolkits widget capabilities+other stuff.

X.org problems hinders stuff that sit ontop of it, not below it and operating systems are not supposed to expose their functionality to GUI applications and hence no operating system should be dependent and held back by X.


For the vast majority of end users the operating system experience starts at the GUI, if the GUI experience is crap then for all intents and purposes for the end user the operating system is crap. Please, next time, read the posts fully instead of scanning through in a hurry then firing off a post that doesn't address a single issue I raised.
