That's actually pretty weird, I've had really nothing but good experience with X.org so far. From what I've seen of it, at home and at work, the display is...crisper and colors are a little more vivid, and frankly, the config setup seems to kick XFree86's ass as far as being forgiving and guessing decent defaults, etc. But I haven't tried running with a dual head setup, at least, not yet.

I do think everything is crisper - and the colors are more vivid. It was a noticable change.

My xorg.conf ended up being pretty similar to my old XFree86-4.

Mmm. I had XF86-4 on FreeBSD 4 and Xorg 6.7 on FreeBSD 5. Xorg was ridiculously easier to get working - as in, it Just Worked. Detected hardware first try (with three different cards), basically behaved itself.

(Mind you, XF86-4 on Debian Sarge also worked with very few hitches on another box. Even did 24-bit properly, which XF86-3 didn't.)

It also has the distinct advantage of being an active project ...
