People who are able to find all necessary numbers will most
likely have no problem with the most mature front-end for the
X configuration -- you know, the know which name consists only
from letters "v" and "i" (in this order ;-)).
No really, what I read in Adam's email (and what's my experience
from reading hundreds of Xorg bugs, being bugmaster for RH
desktop I read a lot of them), the problems we have are not in
not having enough information about hardware (take a look at
/var/log/Xorg.0.log -- there is plenty of information there) --
it's that quite often the information provided by hardware is
plainly wrong, or that xorg drivers suck. Concerning the former,
I don't understand how would information provided to Windows by
the vendor was that much better than information they provide via
hardware. And concerning the latter, I don't see any relation to
"bulletproof X" whatsoever.
Please, correct me if I am wrong.
