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.

So little what ? Gimme JUST a raw average of man/hour spend by the community on all the Linux distro, then multiply by an average coder's $$$/hour to get the "actual monetary investment" spent on it (the time spent on Linux ain't spent on something else, other coding or else) Plus that Linux is 15 years old, and should have grown better, brighter, ...lighter also !
