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."

It's no worse than GNOME or KDE and most people won't have to build the packages from tarballs. If you really like doing that kind of thing, use Gentoo, where it's pretty easy to get up and running with modular X.

So... you're telling me those aren't the Santa's elfs ? Package creation now is much less magical than I thought it would be... ;)

(Sorry, just couldn't loose the joke...)
