re: I experienced the switch from X11 to Xorg... and writing the configs for both was the biiiiiigest pita in computer history
 

Haha, yes I was totally talking about X11 above. The early days of Linux were quite painful but fun at the same time.

Nothing quite like waiting two days for the kernel to re-compile only to discover that you left the sd driver out.

The move away from the monolithic kernel was such a vast improvement in maintainability.
