lot of news about linux bling, while the foundation is still rather unfinished. there are at a few projects in xorg i would like to see finished more than compositing. 1 modesetting, plugin you lcd and make xorg automagicaly select the correct resolution. 2 multi monitor with gui tools for kde/gnome. 3 non root xorg? hotplug for monitor/input also with gui setup apps. we are not there yet, and no beryl is not enough for me...

I think you will start to see that with Xorg 7.3+ with the upcoming and promising randr 1.2

I currently run xorg-server 1.3RC2. It perfectly detects and sets up my widescreen monitor and all the input devices without a xorg.conf at all ;-) Oh and hotplug works too. The only thing I wish to get better is a proper suspend/resume support.
