    Phoronix: X11 Turns 25 Years Old Today

    It was 25 years ago today, on 15 September 1987, that Version 11 Release 1 of the X Window System (a.k.a. X11) was released. X11 has evolved a long way since then, but this 25-year-old technology out of MIT remains at the heart of every Linux desktop.

    A nice age to die. Especially if you are a computer program.

    Default X12

    Does X12 have to be implemented all at once to be switched to or could it be a gradual change?

    X12 is not only about adding stuff and fixing stuff, it is also about removing stuff.

    You could say that wayland IS X12 - it will reuse much code in X11 stack and remove non-used features / aspects of x11

    The only fun X11 gave us.

    The only retarded technology I hate more is IE6.
