Perhaps a bit off topic -- if Apple had chosen X11 instead of their proprietary display system, would they be contributing to DRI/DRM?
Even further off topic -- why did Apple choose their own proprietary system? It can't be for secrecy, since it must be the apps which they want to keep closed source. Was it something they inherited from Next, was it a Steve Jobs preference, was X11 too slow and/or limited?
