X11, Window Managers Have you ever been annoyed by Linux' lack of a coherent graphical boot process? Graphics hardware causing problems during sleep/wake cycles? Problematic virtual terminal switches? Kernel-based mode-setting, a new feature of Xorg still in heavy development aims to solve many of these problems by moving the mode-setting code from the user-space X driver into the Linux kernel. Phoronix takes a look at this new feature.

No.

I'm not interested in seeing it boot. I'm preoccupied with using it.

Well, in that case you should be really happy, as the new feature makes using Linux easier and less buggy (potentially).
