Over at TechRepublic, Jack Wallen laments the loss of Linux configuration files
. He went to edit his xorg.conf
file on Fedora 10, finding, to his dismay, that there wasn't one. "Dont get me wrong, I understand the 'why'. For large-scale adoption Linux needs to be as simple to use as the competition. One way to make this so is to take the guess work out of setting up such things as video. And I think its safe to say we all know that configuring video has, in the past, been a nightmare on certain chipsets. And to that end I can fully understand why the developers would want to go this route. And if they can create a fool-proof system that will be able to successfully configure X Windows with zero user intervention, more power to them. But I think this is a sign of things to come, and that sign looks like a Merge with Linux and Windows.
