X11, Window Managers The X Windowing System is the graphical backbone of most UNIX-like operating systems (and OpenVMS) - despite lots and lots of criticism, the system has withstood the test of time. Despite its age, development on X has not slowed down - in fact, it only seems to have picked up. A few weeks ago, we had kernel-based mode setting, and today we have the X server running as user instead of root.

OpenBSD has had Xorg privsep for years, wake up and smell the truth.
BSD > You.
End of discussion.

No, BSDfan. Not "End of discussion". Until we in the POSIX domain recognize the fallacy of treating each other as enemies rather than as allies it will never be "end of discussion". You wake up, look at the reality, and (please) start being nice. We will all be better off for it.
