    I don't think articles that consist of quoting mailing list and commit messages + linking to other phoronix "articles" should be considered "original news"

    That is incorrect, they need to be GPLv2 compatible. The MIT/X11 license is GPLv2 compatible.

    If people enjoy something, they will continue to do it, it doesn't need to have a grand purpose, and it's not harming you.

    So why are you complaining?

    NOTE: I don't use Solaris or *BSD, but I...

    Novell also develops X, the linux kernel, gnome, kde, and more.

    Archlinux doesn't have a stock configuration. No preference towards video drivers is made, there is no default filesystem, hardly anything is installed by 'default'. X isn't even installed.

    DRI2 was made by krh, who works for redhat NOT intel.
