This is news to me, although I note, now that you mention it, that there's
an xorg-x11 ebuild in Gentoo (blocked by XFree). When I installed Gentoo on
my desktop box a year ago or so, I believe that Xfree was recommended.
A few questions:
What are the advantages of X.org over XFree?
If I have XFree successfully installed and running, are there any advantages
Do 3rd party vendors, notably VMWare which I think supplies an optimized
XFree driver, support X.org?
