==============
Which version(s) of the X.Org server are running on your Linux system(s)?
==============

X11 Release 6.8: 1.46%
X11 Release 6.9: 1.65%
X11 Release 7.0: 3.56%
X11 Release 7.1: 9.72%
X11 Release 7.2: 35.78%
X11 Release 7.3: 45.57%
Other: 2.22%

The results to this question were most interesting with the X.Org 7.3 adoption at 45%. X.Org 7.3 / X server 1.4 was released in September and most distributions don't yet ship with this newer software. We imagine part of this may boil down to Linux users selecting X.Org 7.3 for X server 1.3.

==============
Which of the listed display feature(s) do you use on your Linux system(s)?
==============

TV-Out: 27.05%
Multiple Display Heads: 41.41%
Output Hot-Plugging: 13.79%
GPU Power Saving Modes: 17.74%

The leading feature that the Linux respondents are seeking when it comes to display support is in the area of multiple display heads. This feature was followed by TV-Out, GPU power saving modes (i.e. ATI PowerPlay), and output hot-plugging (i.e. RandR 1.2).
