Windows The Verge published a video demonstrating how desktop mode and Office 2013 - a desktop application - work on Windows RT, the ARM version of Windows 8. The video showed a desktop mode that clearly didn't work well for touch, and even Office 2013, which has a rudimentary touch mode built-in, didn't work properly either. It looked and felt clunky, often didn't respond properly, and even showed touch lag.

What they se is this: graphics crashed, all my programs went down with it.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but AFAIK the fact that your apps go down along with the X server is because of the frameworks running on top of X not taking advantage of some of it's features.

That is, X itself does actually support resuming your apps when recovering from a crash, so replacing X with something else wouldn't magically fix that problem.
