    My apologies - I misunderstood what you were saying.

    However, I think you undervalue technology like IPv4 and SMTP - they are flawed, but they have the benefit of being extraordinarily well tested - their limitations are well known and understood. IPv6 is the way forward (I don't think many would argue otherwise), but IPv4 is certainly rock solid.

    I may be overly-cautious, but I've seen (and caused) problems from the desire to upgrade and move on to better technology, and I wouldn't like the internet to be glitchy :-)

    In terms of graphics, the migration from the classic radeon drivers to the gallium drivers seems like the right way to go (if memory serves, both were supported and developed for a while) for migration from X11 (NB: this is the point of view of an outsider, so take it with a pinch of salt).
