What does this mean? Well... that even the god damn old XP handles this thing better than X!


I was under the impression that apps crashing when X goes down was due to the toolkits and not X, since X is not actually killing anything nor stopping apps from reconnecting.

At the end of the day you are still losing your work if X crashes, but the blame is not on the usual suspect.
