X11, Window Managers FSM has an article about improvements coming our way in X.org. "There's more coming our way than 'mere' graphical goodness: Xorg developers are about to unleash upon us more performance and ease of use than X ever knew before. Not only that, the work being done now will allow older hardware to perform better and new hardware to be supported faster."

Will it be necessary to have Xorg installed by default in the future ? What about graphics, text modes supported by linux ? I'm asking, because I like the idea of having a thin generic (2D) graphics layer in the kernel ( not the drivers/video crap and not only mode changing support ), but it seems it does not have a big chance as long as there is no such common interface supported by hw vendors. Or do you think VESA is the standard ?
