X11, Window Managers Over the past couple of months, and especially over the past couple of weeks, I've been working very hard to write and complete my thesis. I performed all the work on Windows 7, but now that the thesis is finally done, submitted, and accepted, I installed Ubuntu - and immediately I was reminded of why I do not do any serious work on Linux: the train wreck that is X.org.

No! No! I agree that X needs to learn a lot from Windows Vista & 7 --- How not to write memory hogger and slow UI interface. ( X is already light on memory and is fast ) So just need to make sure we do not follow the path of Vista & 7 ;)
