Linux has been my main OS since I started using it back in summer of 98.

the BSD's. As far as I can tell, xouvert intends to only support Linux
(at this point at least). I think that would be a mistake.

Xouvert does not intend to break or remove support for ANY platform on
which it already works.  GNU/Hurd, GNU/Linux, and *BSD will be our
biggest priorities, but we won't be hostile to patches that make Xouvert
work on proprietary commercial platforms either.

I also think that removing network transparency would be a big mistake
and that keeping it would result in no compromises in the rest of the

Xouvert is an X11 server.  Therefore we cannot (nor do we desire to)
remove network transparency.
