The XFree86 Project changed their license for the 4.4.0 release to include a BSD-like
advertising clause. This makes it incompatible with the GPL, which means that distros
are not allowed to ship binaries of GPL-ed programs which link against the new X
libraries. Most big distros already announced that they won't ship an XFree86 under the
license. I took that as a reason for looking at the various new open source X
implementations for Unix. Everything was tested on Lenin.
This was a flawless compile with the instructions given on the above mentioned site.
The mouse cursor behaved weird and had an upsweep behind it. Eterm worked, when I tried
to start mplayer in fullscreen mode the machine rebooted. I took that as a good reason
to say that this is not ready for the next release of $Distro.

Well, this project just started, so it's not ready either of course. It looks nice
though with an SDL backend, iterm-support and a possible standard toolkit. I could only
start the daemon though, when I tried out yterm or ysample, the server just aborted.
