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.

If kwin crashes, your apps should still be open, you just can't move them around anymore.

Or did you mean that kwin crashed and brought X down with it?

I don't bother to check. If something goes wrong with the window manager, I clobber everything and get back to normal. I feel that's the safest approach. At least I don't have to reboot.
