Everything in this mail is just a guess, things in reality have very
probably been completely different.

Yes, having talked to the lead developer on NX _years_ ago (2003 IIRC),
he spent quite some time trying to persuade the X folks that he had ways
of getting rid of (largely pointless) round-trips and the like.  He said
that having his contributions consistently rejected drove him to
distraction.

Of course, he is (or was at the time) a fairly volatile Italian, so
perhaps there was simply a clash of cultures, but he claimed that he
setup NX out of exasperation, rather than because he wanted to keep it
seperate from X.

Then again, this was before xorg, so perhaps integration into X is now a
possibility, but I have a feeling that that ship sailed long ago.

Cheers, Phil.

Glad you could provide this bit of information! Thanks!

Mike
