If this continues, I'll run my 5.4-p8 workstation with "old
fashioned" X (already until I die. :-)

No, honestly: X is going to be more and more annoying. Have
you noticed the long startup time? Nearly a half minute (!!!)
on a 1.5 GHz system! I know that there is lots of work done
to make life easier for X developers, especially getting rid
of many OS specific stuff, but...

Finally, sliding more off-topic: Not only X gets slower with
each release, the same applies for almost all X applications,
except the "old fashioned" ones.


Just: Sad.

Thanks for your patience so I could say this.
