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.

Configurable X
by Dan G on Fri 27th Feb 2004 01:10 UTC

I would hope that while X achieves a more open development structure, it would also be as configurable as the linux kernel is - prior to being compiled. That way, everyone can have their code and features included, but not everyone would have to run the code they dont want/need. Is this what f.d.o means by more modularized?

Of cource this would require the current X project leaders to get over their power trips/egos.. not likely
