X11 is indeed a protocol.

You've mixed a TON of criticisms... that stem from implementations of CDE and old ways of handling libraries and memory management that have pretty much gone away in any Modern Build of X... (or that uses any of the recent re-factored source codes. Compilers now a day are a lot smarter than you obviously know.

Sorry you don't have a relative clue.

So, how long have you been actually *USING* X?
