Hi William -

usually sees in experienced trolls.

Secondly, more rot had set in at Xfree than just the license.  The license 
problem was like a big fungus on a tree, you only see it when the tree is 
dying already.  The license was the last straw that pushed the bulk of 
distros away from the XF86 *project*.

Why would staying with the increasingly totalitarian XF86 project would have 
been brighter?  I am interested to hear the reasons that escaped the 
dumber-than-thou folks at SuSE, Mandrake, Debian, Redhat and so on.

Here's an extension to an idea already suggested to you... if you feel 
strongly enough about it, maintain a modified Fedora distro that uses XF86.  
Surely people will flock to it... it's BRIGHTER.
