How many times have you heard the cries from users on various forums about their X not working? Do you guys remember, probably a couple of years back, there were so many people complaining that Ctrl+Alt+Backspace didn’t work anymore after an update? Anyway, I just happened upon a funny quote from Fortune that talks about how cars would be like, if X-window designers built them.
If the designers of X-window built cars, there would be no fewer than five
steering wheels hidden about the cockpit, none of which followed the same
principles -- but you'd be able to shift gears with your car stereo. Useful

Kind of captures the essence of Xorg, don’t you think? 😀
