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.

Why are half of the comments here from people stating how their experience differs from Thom's, and therefore Thom's experience must be a 'lesser' one? You folks are completely missing the point he is trying to bring across with his firey incantation.

Strange how prose meant to draw a knee jerk reaction leads to that. Appeal To Emotion FTW if you want to stir the masses rather than effect change. Rabble rousing is a fantastic way to rally troops if your intent is to go to war. It is epic fail, OTOH, if you actually expect those being lambasted to listen to your argument or you expect reasonable discourse to follow.
