X.org's X depends on hardware?
I am relatively new to Linux, but i do C/C++ programming for over 10 years now and know enough about internal workings of a machine hardware.
The thing is i dont understand, if Linux and it's application praise modularity, why does the lates X.org's X release state in "Features":
i965: Intel i965 chipsets (aka X3000) are supported in this release.
I don't know about this particular case, but my bet is before that chipset was supported with the generic vesa driver. So I guess that would put it in the optimisation category (driver tailored just for). As for the second question, I am not quite sure.Brilliant Mediocrity - Making Failure Look Good
