Not sure this was an issue, The linux check does mention this - "X11 is a standard you can get a big book on".

agree some framebuffer fallback would be good to have though as mentioned crashing Xorg isnt something I have a problem with.

My point is there is no talk of the future already in play. Wayland and Gallium3D are very interesting developments. A complete Nouveau driver will be interesting to watch the impact of, including Nvidia's response. Will they fight it or chip in? All this will increase the stability of XOrg, as well as trim the code base down, making new features easier to add. All very interesting but not mention on a podcast about X. Both podcasts would lead you to believe XOrg is stagnant.

totally agree, but this isn't something the OSNews guys know much about? - would be great if they could interview someone who is involved with some of the XOrg development.
