X11, Window Managers "This is an introductory overview post for the Linux Graphics Stack, and how it currently all fits together. I initially wrote it for myself after having conversations with people like Owen Taylor, Ray Strode and Adam Jackson about this stack. I had to go back to them every month or so and learn the stuff from the ground up all over again, as I had forgotten every single piece. I asked them for a good high-level overview document so I could stop bothering them. They didn't know of any. I started this one. It has been reviewed by Adam Jackson and David Airlie, both of whom work on this exact stack." Introductory or no, still pretty detailed.

I thought I've even seen it posted on OSNews before.

Not only that, I remember at the time specifically not reading an article because I thought it was this one.

I can't find it right now, though.

Maybe it was linked accidentally instead of its more recent follow-up:

It's an excellent series, I wish it existed last year when I was looking for an introductory overview.
