Upcoming Mozilla Tree Plans
Friday June 1st, 2001
Chris Blizzard, a member of the mozilla.org Drivers, has posted an update on what will be happening for the next milestone (0.9.2). Basically, checkins will require Driver approval, along with the normal review and super-review. The milestone will only be two weeks long, and will give the tree a chance to breathe a bit, following a long string of large rewrites. To read the entire message, click the full article link.

Thanks for clearing me up on that, I hadn't been aware of that before.
X is indeed slower as it runs in user mode, while Windows runs in kernel mode at the cost of potential instability. Therefore Windows will be a bit faster. Similarly, that is why they had to create DRI, so that you could directly access the hardware instead of going through the X server.
