X11, Window Managers Intel on Ubuntu's XMir:

We do not condone or support Canonical in the course of action they have chosen, and will not carry XMir patches upstream.

Ubuntu has to do virtually all its work on Xmir drivers by itself. No one else supports it.

Redhat 7.3, 8 and 9 were pretty good desktop Operating systems, and you could pick it up in PC world in the UK in a nice shrink wrap box.

Most of the reviews are from 2003.

As you probably know lucas_maximus I've followed RHEL for quite a long time, long before RedHat 7 hit the shelves. Those were never intended for consumer desktops, they were geared for and great for workstation class systems and servers.

I remember, RH announce a global linux desktop or something I forgot the exact term. And then eventually gave up the idea.
