X11, Window Managers "This is an introductory overview post for the Linux Graphics Stack, and how it currently all fits together. I initially wrote it for myself after having conversations with people like Owen Taylor, Ray Strode and Adam Jackson about this stack. I had to go back to them every month or so and learn the stuff from the ground up all over again, as I had forgotten every single piece. I asked them for a good high-level overview document so I could stop bothering them. They didn't know of any. I started this one. It has been reviewed by Adam Jackson and David Airlie, both of whom work on this exact stack." Introductory or no, still pretty detailed.

I would love that. We need one champion to take on Windows and MacOS, not 10^6 different *nix-like operating systems and Linux flavours.


And that is why we end up with so many Linux distributions.

"Unlike all previous distributions, MY distribution will be the end-all."
