In the first place stability, and as a bonus maybe some speed-up. I'm currently using the XFree86-4 port, and X screws up so often (daily) and badly (no console, ctrl-alt-backspace useless) that I'd like to try alternatives. I'm also looking into other ways to improve performance: because hangs happened almost exclusively while running OpenOffice I recompiled this thingie. It seems to help until now but I haven't run it enough yet to be sure. BTW, if it were my own PC and not the PC of my employer I would simply put in another video card and disable the onboard 845G. Anyway I wouldn't have bought this stock Dell machine in the first place :-/.
