There seems to be no QA at all for options that aren't turned on a default configuration, as in not a single one.

The only thing saving our collective behinds here on nvnews is that the actual driver, the one fro NVidia, is very good and doesn't drop features at a high pace. That is why some of you here might feel X11 is going better. It's not, it's the NVidia driver.
That's funny.. I don't touch the nvidia driver, and I strongly feel that Xorg is getting better.

What, exactly, do you mean by "anybody who relies on what Unix did better than Windows in the first place"? I barely even touch Windows, relying quite strong on the things Unix does best, and disagree that Xorg has turned badly since 7.2 or 7.3. So please don't generalize this to "anybody".
