The only reason I made the switch to it was because for some bloody reason support for acecad tablets was in the mouse driver for XFree86 making it impossible, afaik, to use it like a tablet. Other than that , I have seen no noticeable differences. There is a slight change in the licenses in XFree86 4.4, but nothing to worry about. It just really provide a reason for a few ppl, all ready annoyed, to get off their butts instead of whinging on about XFree86 and actually go and split it off. As far as who is going to win out, still not enough info to actually tell. But a lot of weight appears to possible behind Xorg right now. But that can probally be attributed to a lot of slashdot ppl throwing their weight behind it because it is not XFree86, which most have a pointless irrational hate of(or of X in general). _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
