Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu We reported earlier on a blog post entitled "Ubuntu Report Card (2009)" where the author detailed how they felt the Ubuntu experience had improved over the years. In a follow-up series of articles looking at the future, Tanner Helland has written 10 different broadly-scoped feature requests that [he] 'and many others would like to see by the time Ubuntu 10.10 rolls around'.

The fact that apps go down when X goes down is entirely the app's and the distro's faults. Apps are perfectly capable of waiting for X to restart and reconnecting to the new X server, and distros are perfectly capable of not returning users to GDM/KDM when the X server crashes.

Yes there are problems with X, but this is not one of them. With a few simple patches to Gtk+ and Qt, and a few changes to upstart in Ubuntu, and this problem would be nearly solved for most users.

Yeah, but the sole fact that X is crashing is X's entire fault.
