Response to: Looks great...can we try it?

But X.Org is such a horribly stupid name.
It's worse than OpenOffice.org.
Noone should ever use software whose name ends
in .org, .net, .com or some other imitation thereof. It's ridiculous. It's a windowing server, not a hostname/website. They can have http://x.org, and that's fine, but called a piece of software x.org is horribly stupid.
