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.

A very good article.It educated me about many aspects of the XFree86 project. The way I see it a major shakeup in an open source project is occasionally needed to cause a paradigm shift. Out of conflict comes change and innovation, though it is seldom a painless process.
