What are you talking about?  David Dawes is having a good time working 
on XFree86 by himself and everyone else is working on the X.Org project; 
I don't see any energy being wasted at all.

Reason this is on-topic: The name change didn't really matter since I 
waited to do it until a full release was made, at which point everyone 
would have to re-download all packages anyway.

Okay, that's all the education about the X world that is on-topic for 
this list.
