I like where things are headed on the X front.

NoMachine has GPLed their X proxy, meaning we now have something that can kick Citrix and RDP’s ass.

x11vnc is a vnc server that works within an existing session. It’s so easy to use that it’s almost impossible to screw up.

Havner is working on PLD script to convert XFree86 installations to It went flawlessly for me, once I got my antiquated RA font packages out.

XFree86 had some spiffy autodetect code that just worked for me to make a config file. It didn’t handle the mouse perfectly, but I have hope.

GNOME 2.6 is sweet. GNOME 2.8 looks even nicer.

Epiphany is a damn nice browser.

Rhythmbox sucks way less than it used to. A few quirks, but it’s getting down to iTunes level.

PLD is aiming to release version 2.0 soon. Wish them luck. I think it’ll be really nice, and 2.1 even better.
