X11, Window Managers "Five months after release of X11R7.0, the modularized and autotooled release of the MIT Licensed X Window System source code, the X.Org Foundation has issued its first modular roll-up release. X11R7.1 supports Linux, Solaris, and BSD systems. It includes important new server and driver features for embedded systems, 64 bit platforms, enhanced operating system support, and accelerated indirect GLX support. It most importantly demonstrates to developers and industry immediate benefits of modularization."

... will this modulisation mean lower memory usage ?

But yeah cool its shipping with nice cool stuff .

I guess it must suck sometimes to see that a feature is available for the newcomer unix-like OS Linux when you are using a Unix .

Just IMO ;)

You are kidding right, if you arent just understand that people as ignorant as yourself should not be making comments. Take it as you will.

Whatever your issue is ;)

But as X seems to have been around longer than Linux & Unix existed before Linux I dont see the utter ignorance on my part.

I just simply commented that for a project which seems to have started for Unix is getting lots of Linux specific "bits" or first-servings which is also true for projects like KDE or GNOME.

Of course its logical - it was just an observation .

But although I think Linux is a really cool "thing" which has come a long way - people seem to associate OSS with Linux & graphical systems also with Linux forgetting that there is an OSS & Unix(&/compatible) world outside of Linux .

And then of course there is also the real world ;)

Forgetting that - isnt that ignorance ?

------------

Does fully modularised X do anything for increased stability & less memory usage ?

Perhaps you should check your attitude at the door, compared to Unix proper, Linux is the newcomer, and he/she/them have every right to post a comment
