Maybe, but I only speak for myself, and not for that large segment of
users who value a [Windows-style] GUI. I always found X11 more useful
than Windows, if only because I could resize dialog windows, something
that still doesn't seem to have made it into many Windows programs.
OTOH, font handling is better on Windows. The new Xft stuff on X11 is a
bloody mess.
