X11, Window Managers For the past year, there has been a slow and steady stream of news events regarding XFree86, X11, or new X server implementations. To those not paying close attention (and even those who are), the meaning of some of these events may not be clear. In this brief article, I attempt to share my impression on what the changes mean for users of free software on the desktop. It appears that XFree86 is in some turmoil, and it may leave some to infer that free desktop systems will suffer.

Death to X

I hope even more trouble will befall X, and that it will finally die alltogether. It is the reason I have never even bothered with Linux (short of the painful things you're forced to do with it at college).

But I guess that by the time a serious X alternative can be released, SkyOS or even OpenBeOS will be long finished.
