>Sorry, it wasn't meant to be condescending, only show that X11 itself cannot itself enforce a basic policy for focus management. I've updated the tone of the article to respect that a bit better.
It looks much better now, thanks.
>> I can't quite grok this, but I'm pretty sure he's saying that the entire Weston compositor is around 2-3KLOC, compared to the tens of KLOC used to implement the corresponding parts of the X subsystems. But his comment about mutter is rather disingenuous -- dwm, for example, is a complete X window manager in ~2200 lines.
>That's what I'm saying. Was the language unclear?
If you explicitly gave an estimate for how many lines of code X requires for these things, it'd be clear, I think. As it is, it takes a bit of thinking to understand what you're comparing to what.
Otherwise, this was a very clear and informative article, and cleared up a lot for me!
