Re: X11 in Leopard: xterm on start-up



PS -- I should send my rants from home so that people don't think LLNL is full of jerks like me. For the record, it's my opinion I've stated, not my employer's! :-)

Noted. If you want to make sure this is officially recognized, please file a bug a bugreporter.apple.com. You will get a note back saying this is a duplicate of a known issue, but your vote will be counted.


sorry, but I have to have a little rant:

And from there, in my experience, it goes into a black hole, where nobody knows if anyone is working on it, whether any progress is made, or when it will get fixed, or if it even does get fixed. This is one of my big gripes with Apple. I file a bug and have no way short of pestering individuals in Apple how it is going. Can you guys just track bugs like normal people? Sheesh. Microsoft is not going to steal X11 from you. There is just the blank web interface and a "Thank you, your bug is very important to us" attitude coming from the whole system. It feels horrible and I don't even report bugs any more. You say you read them, but how would I know if you weren't?
