He spends half his article talking about my slashdot comment[0] where I lay
out the XSF accomplishments for etch and hint at my plans for lenny. Then
he acts pissed off that I haven't fixed what is a *major* problem for
*every* linux distribution out there[1] in the etch timeframe. 

Vaughan-Nichols is a troll, pure and simple, and we have vastly more
positive things to do for ourselves, for our users, and for the community
at large than listen to his puffed up sense of entitlement.

[0] An unattributed comment by the way. I'm a little unnerved that he
    figured out it was me. Given that his site is part of eweek, which
    also publishes the linux slander articles by Maureen O'Gara and
    friends, it reeks a little bit of the journalistic slime that's
    attacking PJ at groklaw.
[1] This work, currently focused on randr 1.2, is taking a ton of effort at
    X.org to get working correctly right now, because Xorg
    autoconfiguration simply doesn't work right, no matter how each distro
    decides to smooth it over
