Unfortunately such things have been sitting in repositories for ages and never seeing the light of day.

You should read Phoronix news. Phoronix has a weird obsession with benchmarks, but covers X.org and Mesa news very well (that includes Gallium).

The open source world is great when it comes to ideas and starting up new projects but when it comes to following it through to the logical conclusion its an entirely different matter.

Stop trolling.

Xorg unfortunately is what holds Linux (or in fact any *NIX for that matter) from mainstream adoption.

No. That would be laziness to try something else than Windows. Win9x was horrible on every single technical aspect and was still used widely.

Distributions talk and talk about 'improvements' but most of it is tweaking around the edges rather than addressing the fundamental flaws in Xorg.

You have no idea. Not every distributor is a lame freeloader like Canonical. Red Had and Novell actually work on Xorg.

Throughput doesn't equal responsiveness; Xorg/XFree86 has always been able to great throughput - heck, I remember back in my COLA (Comp.OS.Linux.Advocacy) days where there would be numerous posts by me and others boasting about how much throughput could be achieved and that the 'X is slow' argument doesn't hold water.

So when you meet someone you disagree with you abuse them - interesting.

I have used 'something other than Windows' - I'm a f--king Mac user for Christsake and used FreeBSD full time from 1996 till 2002 - so please, shove what ever 'valuable' advice you have up your ass.

How about this idea; the ability for my Inspiron to wake up from being put to sleep and the GUI actually coming back to life instead of being greeted with a blank screen - yes, I am using the Neavou drivers that came with Fedora. How about addressing why alt-clt-backspace has been disable on almost every distribution which leaves me screwed when Xorg has frozen. How about addressing the lack of quality drivers instead of sending off abusive posts on this forum because your cohorts can't get their act together.

He was talking about the general populace being too lazy to try something else than Windows, he wasn't talking about you.

You did it too right there, the "shove what ever" etc part.

You made a claim about the entire open source world. That's trolling.

I thought it was simply replaced with RightAlt+SysReq+K? Anyway that works for Ubuntu.
