    Phoronix: Contributors To The X Server

    Since our article yesterday entitled X Server 1.4.1 Is Released, No Joke where we shared that the X.Org server update -- a critical part of the Linux desktop -- was released albeit significantly late and the blocker bug list wasn't even cleared, it's sparked discussions on our forums and other online communities on how the X.Org release management can be improved and how new developers can become involved. One of the most common recommendations has been to get more software (distribution) vendors involved, seeing as they are the ones shipping X.Org to many of the desktop users around the world. However, as there hasn't been a list (or at least not in some time) that looks at each of the commits to the X server in regards to each of the companies and the developers involved, we've provided one in this article that covers all X Server activity going back nine years.

    Just to correct the wording, Ubuntu isn't a fork. Not a spork either. It's a syncronized soup.

    Yeah, before he made it quite clear he was developing for Ubuntu now since apparently Debian had some unfixable ill that was best dealt with by working on a fork.

    Well it would be nice if nvidia would fix the nv driver so that it actually worked properly with all their cards.

    I'm surprised how much Intel has put in to be honest.

    I wonder if X.Org would be better with more ATI / Nvidia support.

    It's kinda interesting to see people expecting the same amount of development work from Ubuntu (backed by a private, unsustainable company) vs OpenSUSE (backed by Novell, a multi-million revenue company) and Fedora (backed by Redhat, same thing).
