Is this a problem (other than cosmetic)? As long as it works... :)

Are XFree86 and Xorg-X11 substantially different? The FC2 release notes
gave me the impression that Xorg-X11 took over from XFree86 at about
version 4.4.0-rc2, more or less. I was assuming the majority of the code
base would be the same...

Btw, where can one read more about the politics (if any) of XFree86 vs
Xorg? Both homepages don't seem to talk much about it.
