Ha! Well, I suppose that's true. My first exposure to X (and Unix)
took place where the X developers were right down the hall and I was a
total newbie guinea pig. It was still X10. An hour after I mentioned
to my host something that looked like a bug, a weird guy I'd never
seen before arrived at my cubicle and asked me to reproduce it. It
really *was* a bug. Around there, everybody was programming directly
in X and writing a window manager was regarded as "how you got
started". Naturally, I never got near that far in just a few weeks
from a newbie start.
So I don't keep up. While I was googling, I of course spotted a lot
of stuff -- too much to get a handle on -- about OpenGL. What would
be the way into that if I wanted to pursue it? Mesa?
