Apple's X11

So now that Apple has released a beta of it's X11 X Window System, I have a question for you? Do you use this? I downloaded and installed XDarwin, but have never used it (similar experience to OpenOffice. What can I do with X11? Can I run Gnome using X11? Do I have a use for it at all?

My guess is that you have yet to discover Fink! <> The key point I'd make is that Mac OS X is Unix, and the defacto standard windowing system for Unix is X11. There are thousands of X apps out there. No, they're not "lickably beautiful" like Mac apps are... But some of them are useful nonetheless! :-) Personally, I most use X11 on OS X as a server for X11 forwarding via SSH. Without this my PowerBook would be much less useful to me, as I'd have to have a Linux or (gasp!) Windows machine on my desk exclusively for that purpose. I do have a number of X apps installed "locally", like Ethereal and Emacs, but of course I prefer native apps when available. :-)
