Why Linux X Windows Suck!

Unix GNU/LinuxI have always hated X Windows, IMHO it has always sucked and judging from the state of it today I guess this won't change.

I use Mac OS X as my workstation of choice and Linux as my server of choice and absolutely loathe Windows but X Sucks, before Mac OS X I used an Atari STE for GUI applications!

I just installed Portable Ubuntu and I load up gvim, I get:

[pubuntu 10:48 /home/pubuntu] gvim
Xlib: extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display "".
Xlib: extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display "".

Then I run less on my Dutch Dictionary and I get this:

aanbeveling (v -en) recommendation; ook: = aanbevelingsbrief, aanbevelingslijst;
<B7>kennis van Frans strekt tot aanbeveling knowledge of French (will be) an advantage;
<B7>het verdient aanbeveling it is to be recommended, it is advisable;
<B7>op aanbeveling van... on the recommendation of...

Why are these characters not displayed ? And why are they displayed correctly when viewed with vim ?

Does this suck or what ?

You don't get this kind of thing with Mac OS X... Or probably Windows for this matter!
