Crazy Day for Mac News

So, of course, the "sleeper" MacWorld that everyone expected was nothing of the kind.
Lots of great stuff came down the pipeline, including new laptops. The biggest news of all (for me anyways) was something that didn't even get announced: a freakin' native X server! It's based on XFree86 and includes native GL (like XFree86 CVS), display postscript, and a window manager called quartz-wm that makes OroborOSX's integration look like when I draw on my cell walls with my own blood. Err. I mean. Uhhh... Anyways.
The most amazing thing is -- THEY USE QUARTZ FONT RENDERING! That's right. X11 now has rendering as beautiful as the rest of OSX.
