Please excuse my ignorance, but could someone summarize what the current status of all the X'es is?
The facts I know so far reduce to:
XFree 4.4 comes with a licence that might not be compatible with GPL. What new features does 4.4 cover? Why does it affect the distributions? Suse can bundle sun's java wich has a license that isn't compatible with GPL either. Is it a real problem or just something the distributors don't like?

What's the state of X.org, freedesktop.org? Can either be used yet? [Guessing from this poll's topic I believe that NVidia's drivers won't work for them though]

Thanks for the clarification,
Stefan
