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.

Quartz by itself does not have the capability to run client applications over a network socket. X does.

Remote Desktop is *not* part of Quartz.

If I'm not mistaken Apple's remote desktop is based on VNC. I'm not sure at all about how Windows' remote assistance feature works, but I highly doubt it's low level enough to be a core part of the graphics subsystem.
