Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The linux desktop is dead! Or so it will be, soon, if these
guys get their way.
"Apparently, and this has been the hot new idea for the last
year or two; for Xserver 1.10 people want to get rid of one of the
greatest things that XFree86 brought us, and one of the better
changes that happened after the X.org fork: modular graphics
"While the current proposal is simply to undo the modularization
work of the mid-naughties (thanks jezza!), it immediately sparked
the imagination of others to go even further (to which Alanc
answered rather strikingly). But merging drivers back is in itself
already a very damaging move."
