Hmm. Well, I'll take your word for it, I haven't read that and don't
plan to, since I'm quite happy with Unix and X11 myself. (Its logic also
does make sense to me these days, though that doesn't mean I always
understood its architecture. It looks like there's a learning curve to
these things, which is why I know it could be confusing to people.
Doesn't mean I don't like it. Often, I like confusing stuff.)
